Sometimes I wish Core77 was a bar populated by the readers and the staff. We could all throw back some drinks, shoot dice in the back, bounce trolls and get into some loose-tongued design debates. Here are some of the things we'd get into, besides beer:
What are some things you'd like to see Jonathan Ive design, post-Apple? Here's my five picks.
Should computers be designed as pieces of furniture?
What are your solutions for dealing with Designer's Guilt?
What roles should design & technology play in our homes?
What do you think of this idea for non-committal office seating, designed in hopes you'll lean rather than sit, and chat rather than "meet?"
I'd heatedly argue with you that these non-red, "stylish" fire extinguishers are a really stupid idea.
What do you think are the merits/demerits of this Alpen Bike Capsule, billed as "a proper home for your bike?"
What do you think of the idea of online Industrial Design degree programs--could they possibly be effective?
Let's say you've got to design an object to compete with this robotic toilet-cleaning device. What would you do differently?
Remember Google's "Digital Wellbeing Experiments?" Is it even possible to use technology more in order to use it less?
Given the on-site restrictions, is this design for moving subway barriers minimum viable product, or the best solution within constraints?
Why is it that most designers don't seem to consider that end users will have to occasionally clean their designs?
