Chandeliers are marvels of drop-dead showiness, the jewellery of architecture.
Designs of purely arbitrary nature cannot be expected to last long.
The primary factor is proportions.
Designs are increasingly winning competitions because they are literally green, and because somewhere they feature a small windmill.
It's a very strange thing for a designer to say, but one of the things that really irritates me in products is when I'm aware of designers wagging their tails in my face.
I've learned a tremendous amount over the years by watching designers work. I now have a good understanding of what sits well on the body, not to mention the importance of a great cut and quality.
If I have a style, I am not aware of it.
Outside of the chair, the teapot is the most ubiquitous and important design element in the domestic environment and almost everyone who has tackled the world of design has ended up designing one.
I like stuff designed by dead people. The old designers. They always got it right because they didn't have to grow up with computers. All of the people that made the spoon and the dishes and the vacuum cleaner didn't have microprocessors and stuff. You could do a good design back then.
Buildings designed with careful attention to aesthetics arouse and enlighten their occupants and that promotes their good health.
Sacred spaces can be created in any environment.
A designer is only as good as the star who wears her clothes.
Clothes and jewellery should be startling, individual. When you see a woman in my clothes, you want to know more about them. To me, that is what distinguishes good designers from bad designers.
British innovation in design, in the creative arts, in engineering and manufacturing is world class.
In my opinion, no single design is apt to be optimal for everyone.
Anyone with a computer and a design program can create a page layout. But unless you're trained in design, it won't look very good and it won't communicate very well.
I think there is a new awareness in this 21st century that design is as important to where and how we live as it is for museums, concert halls and civic buildings.
Everyday people are not very good designers.
The aim of being a good designer is to have an influence. If you design furniture or lifestyle, you should influence the way people evolve globally. It's good to have an influence.
I would think twice about designing stuff for which there was no need and which didn't endure.
Great designers seldom make great advertising men, because they get overcome by the beauty of the picture - and forget that merchandise must be sold.
James Randolph Adams
We design our world, while our world acts back on us and designs us.
People tell you the world looks a certain way. Parents tell you how to think. Schools tell you how to think. TV. Religion. And then at a certain point, if you're lucky, you realize you can make up your own mind. Nobody sets the rules but you. You can design your own life.
As all human beings are, in my view, creatures of God's design, we must respect all other human beings. That does not mean I have to agree with their choices or agree with their opinions, but indeed I respect them as human beings.
If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.
John F. Kennedy
