Marcel Wanders

16Jan10

Today I’m pondering what Marcel Wanders has to say about the ‘new’.  

designers have: “..shown ourselves to be revolutionary, we try to be evolutionary. Durability has always been key in my wor, and I believe that the ecological challenges that face us today are psychological. If people don’t like something, they throw it away becuase it doesn’t satisfy their need for newness any more., this is because we have made the new so important in our culture. We must start to make the old as valuable as the new in the popular imagination.”  [1000 Interior details for the home, ed by Ian and Geraldine Rudge]

How do we do this??
