Culture is Not Always Popular: Fifteen Years of Design Observer

sold out




A collection of writing about design from the influential, eclectic, and adventurous Design Observer. The site has consistently embraced a broader, more interdisciplinary, and circumspect view of design's value in the world. Dedicated to the pursuit of originality, imagination, and close cultural analysis, Design Observer quickly became a lively forum for readers in the international design community. This collection includes reassessments that sharpen the lens or dislocate it; investigations into the power of design idioms; off-topic gems; discussions of design ethics; and experimental writing, new voices, hybrid observations, and other idiosyncratic texts.
