I really enjoyed this TED Talk shared by FreelanceSwitch, and thought I’d post it here too. If you’re into design, it’s a must-see.

In this video Philippe Starck, With no pretty slides to show — Stark spends 18 minutes reaching for the very roots of the question “Why design?” Listen carefully for one perfect mantra for all of us, genius or not.

    Not sure what’s so special about it.
    One thing this video will do is insult religious people who believe in God..

    just my 2 cents

    @Joe you can believe in God and in Evolution at the same time.

    Anyway, all he says I think is that design is pretty useless, it’s just a luxury we can afford as civilized human beings, just like art.

    Hi guys. I’m surprised this video sparked a debate on evolution. As fun as that is, this isn’t the place for it. A few more lengthy comments have come in, which I’ve deleted, and will continue to do so.

    If you’d like to continue the debate, I’m sure there is somewhere else you can do it. I’m happy to post a link. :)
