The end of trends

I truly enjoyed a very interesting interview with Philippe Starck in the latest issue of Frame magazine #86. Starck, from his pragmatic point of view, talks about the end of new things. All that we have in today’s design is a renewal from the past. His statement is strong: “I see the end of trends”. I really like it. I agree with Starck and I’m glad that we have the same opinions on many things. We are both criticising the fashion industry and its marketing for misusing the definition of what DESIGN really is and what DESIGN really means. I am so happy about the ‘new me’ and the end of the ‘old me’. Now we should find a new word for the already cursed and bewitched concept of ‘TREND’.

Good article! Definitely worth reading.
