You think there's a correlation? ha ha The fact that he needs (and...cringe...thanks you for) your validation doesn't bode well for that theory. The fact that he is "defining art" for us pretty much tells me everything I need to know about how that theory applies to him. I've given the little attention whore too much of my time already.
The fact of the matter is that if it is being marketed as art, in the art economy, and it is being consumed as art, and it's primary purpose is to stimulate you...so who's to say it isn't art on the basis that it has a secondary purpose as a functional item?
I'm not defining art for anybody. I'm telling you that you don't know what you are talking about.
I was actually thinking of folks like Oscar Wilde, Mozart, and Jim Morrison.
Ok...let's test that theory of yours. When I said "design is the new art" I was acknowledging the fact that the concept is out there...and it is. So I do know what I'm talking about. Your personal "feelings" about it are irrelevant. The fact that you get hostile about it is interesting, but equally irrelevant.
Theories are only as good as the evidence to support them. I may very well not know what I'm talking about....but you haven't provided any evidence to support it.
A: There is evidence of how knowledgable these folks were.
B: They weren't "behaving badly on the internet"....anonymously.
Why do I need to when you have provided copious amounts?
Here is another variant of the Toogood table.
Hopton white stone cube, a long horizontal cylinder in English walnut, a vertical cylinder in Italian marble and a frame in brass-plated steel mesh.
The glass topped one reminds me of the Metafora table by Vignelli.
i saw this chair yesterday. It's pretty neat, and has a very small footprint.
(also, if you have the business card of an architect, Cappellini will give you 20% off at any time)
Thinking about Morrison bed. Cool if I borrow your wife for a bit?
that's a nice bed. Which is rare, because most beds are awful (it's not their fault, beds are naturally bad looking).
at the NYC store, you basically just need a business card and you're good for 20%.
You should be fine with the current Morrison sale. I doubt they give you 40% off if you roll in with an architect.
You haven't seen Gomie's wife.
in general, Cappellini/Cassina only give 20%, irregardless of the client. HM will go higher. It's like the weirdest "open secret" in the business, and if somebody really wants to sell you something, they'll even hint it with a "you're working with an architect, right? Good!"
