Can we appreciate the value of a product?
Do we ever wonder how much work was put into creating a usable product? How long has it been between the first sketch and the final design which was produced and then landed in our hands? How many people were involved in the production process?
We want to reveal something that cannot be seen when we look at a beautiful cup, a delicate shelf, or a designer seat. Problems, barriers, failures, limited budgets, people, their worries and their sleepless nights. A storm that preceded the realization of the idea.
Will you appraise the product differently once you know the “storm” which created it?
When you think about this “storm” will you see a different value of the product they created?
