I’d hate to make a habit of posting something that corresponds to every new article I read from Alice Rawsthorn published by the International Herald Tribune, but I think the timing is warranted. Her latest is titled The designer Newson teams up with Gagosian Gallery. The timing comes as Marc Newson has an opening this Thursday night at Gagosian Gallery in New York. The article itself gives a decent overview of how this design-art has come to be, and the predecessing social and political issues that were on the minds of designers before their work became artifacts.

For bonous points, watch the videos from the SVA MFA Designer As Author: Guest Lectures by Paola Antonelli, part 1 of 3. You’ll have to scroll all the way down to see part two and three
