THE PIN–UP QUOTE: SO–IL
I like the cheapness of certain things, like oil-canning reflections, for example. What is problematic, and I think this is a more fundamental issue, is that design should’t be exclusive. But it’s the opposite of Design Within Reach [the furniture retailer]. The everyday can be thought through in some way that actually heightens experience, so that you become aware of it in some way. I think the challenge now, especially here in the U.S., is that architecture is often the application of expensive materials in some big private place. It sucks if architecture is only a luxury product.
