If there’s one product designer to know about, it would be Marc Newson. We saw Mark speak at the MOCA a few years back with J Mays, (global VP of design at Ford) about a little concept car they’d come up with called the 021C (shown above). They talked about the concept of a product as a “love object”. This concept held that people had a relationship with the products they used everyday, and that product designers could endow objects with a personality that was friendly rather than just utilitarian. This concept is apparent in Newson’s work, which has the rare quality of looking both futuristic and friendly.
Newson’s self titled book is available at Amazon.com for $34.00.
