Title: The Magic of Meaningful Objects
Have you ever thought about the assortment of objects you surround yourself with? In your kitchen, in your garage, on your worktable, in your living room, in your handbag: literally everywhere. We are inherently surrounded by a sea of objects… and you handpick them from various channels: from a mall or from a big box store or from Amazon and some how they all magically seem to work together (well most of the time).
Now have you ever wondered how all these objects seem to fit together, to work in unison, like a well-choreographed performance? If you are curious, let’s go behind the curtains of the second longest standing independent industrial design studio of the nation, born right here in Detroit in 1934, to understand, to discover, and to feel the design philosophy and structured methodology it takes to put forth these beautiful objects, to seamlessly fit in your personal lifestyle, in the most meaningful way. And if this is done in a human-centric way, respecting your needs, wants, and desires, and to deliver you the expected “ideal user experience”, then folks… it’s basically indistinguishable from magic.
