| Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose.
| To whom does design address itself: to the greatest number, to the specialist of an enlightened matter, to a privileged social class? Design addresses itself to the need.
| The details are details. They make the product. The connections, the connections, the connections. It will in the end be these details that give the product its life.
| The real questions are: Does it solve a problem? Is it serviceable? How is it going to look in ten years?
| Art resides in the quality of doing, process is not magic.
| It is almost impossible to reconcile self expression with the creative act.
| Who ever said that pleasure wasn't functional?
| Eventually everything connects - people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se.
| It makes me feel guilty that anybody should have such a good time doing what they are supposed to do.
| Choose your corner, pick away at it carefully, intensely and to the best of your ability and that way you might change the world.
| In architecture the idea degenerated. Design allows a more direct and pleasurable route.
| The details are not the details. They make the design.
| We work because it's a chain reaction, each subject leads to the next.
| It is not easy to do something good, but it is extremely difficult to do something bad.
| Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design.
| Ideas are cheap. Always be passionate about ideas and communicating those ideas and discoveries to others in the things you make.
