Publisher Description

The function of a chair in the traditional concept is to sit on, so it should be stable and solid in its form. Nevertheless, Design One shows us a very dangerous object: the fragmented glass piles on together and makes a form of a chair. ... Does this embody a kind of crisis in design? In the eyes of some conservatives, the orthodox and rigorous concepts of modern design, the exquisite functions pursued by Modernism and initiated in Germany are being questioned, criticized. Concise, form being in conformity with function, clear and distinct beauty of sequence is ceasing to be in force. It seems that someone opened Pandora's box, all of a sudden, variously absurd, weird, even hideous objects flood everywhere. The whole world is in chaos, nothing is steady and the old fashioned standard seems invalid in measuring the reality.
