Here's a fantastic and revealing interview with Naoto Fukusawa, shot in his Tokyo studio. The legendary industrial designer not only covers his backstory and how he got into design, but also discusses his design process. He also touches on how he reconciles industrial production with handicraft, his thoughts on long-duration objects, the futility of brainstorming meetings, his take on functionalism, the potential irrelevance of personal taste, and how minimalism is "not just about the simplicity of form."
It's well worth the watch.
