In May 2010, the New York design community lost one of its most prolific and influential designers of the current generation, Tobias Wong. Blurring the boundary between conceptual art and design, the work of Tobias questioned the value system of objects and pretensions of designers with wit, satire and humor.
Nine celebrated New York-based designers have come together to interpret and reflect the work of Tobias through their unique and individual design sensibilities.
Through the lens of Tobias we hope to gain new insight into our work by questioning our personal values, design process and the necessity of humor by remembering never to take life or yourself too seriously.
We here at Core77 are proud to present exclusive interviews with the designers next week, leading up to BrokenOff BrokenOff. Each of the designers we have spoken with have a personal story to share and a unique perspective to celebrating the life and legacy of Tobias Wong.
