Besides Interface-Inspired Print Design there also is Device-Inspired Product Design as it seems. At Platoon Kunsthalle in Seoul I discovered chairs that looked as if greatly influenced by the iPhone. On the photo it seems as if a gigantic iPhone (without the built-in ear-piece) was leaning against the table.
I repute this to be not a isolated incident, but the first manifestations of a new trend in product design. To a stronger extend the design of handsets (and also the graphical user interface) more an more inspire the design of common goods—and not the other way around as it had been for years. More soon. (I captured the image with an iPhone, of course.)
