Form


Follows function follows form follows function.

Amazing. This magazine titled FORM actually uploaded all their back issues since 1957 on to their website.
This is a page from the year I was born.
I'd like to live in those times when human kept achieving breakthroughs in technology and design.
Nowadays we're just enhancing what we already have. Normal Swatch becomes thin Swatch, cars turn into hybrid cars, calculators become solar powered calculators, Walkman evolves into iPods, small is the new big is the new small, letters > emails.
I'd like to be there when they first revealed the computer mouse, or maybe the first water kettle and be scared shitless.
Instead of taking everything for granted and keep complaing about how things could be smaller/ faster/ thinner/ more beautiful/ smarter......
