i dunno man, that last one, the flat-surface sink...i can't imagine putting that in my own bathroom. i've had this cough for the past several weeks, and every morning i've been hocking some terrible phlegm that would just look awful travelling across that smooth surface. not to mention what would happen if it got stuck. show me a basin-less urinal, and then you've got something. /andrew

I think the problem with Target's designs is that they violate the guideline that form follows functions.

Stark's products for Target worked better as focal points or pieces of art than lemon juicers, etc... Karim Rashid tried to shake up the design of a soap bottle but those tweaks made it inferior to the standard design.

Having said all that, I still give stores like Ikea and Target the benefit of the doubt for at least trying to bring design to the masses and making it affordable for the masses. The Arts and Crafts Movement was supposed to bring good design to the masses. While they succeded with coming up with good designs, their products were too expensive for the masses to enjoy.

The masses don't understand design.

Pet peeve of mine. If you have a business where people enter and exit through a main entry door, do NOT put door pulls on both sides of the door unless your door swings both directions! I don't care if there is a sign directing you to "push" or not. As designers, you should know that people do NOT READ PUSH/PULL signs until after they have tried using the door. If your door is counter-intuitive, you might as well not have one.
