10 Commandments of Design November 21, 2007

Filed under: Blogroll,Designer notes — irenescloset @ 2:40 pm

kiuTreeHugger goes on and on about the importance of design; convincing folks to design the stuff we consume so that it better reflects the TreeHugger ethic is an extremely important step in moving our planet to a sustainable future. 10 Commandments of Design, conceived by German industrial designer Dieter Rams, sum this up well enough that we could just about put “sustainable” in the middle and call it good. Designers and fans of where stuff comes from, take heed:

1. Good design is innovative
2. Good design makes a product useful
3. Good design is aesthetic
4. Good design helps a product to be understood
5. Good design is unobtrusive
6. Good design is honest
7. Good design is durable
8. Good design is consistent to the last detail
9. Good design is concerned with the environment
10. Good design is a s little design as possible

Succinct, minimal and endlessly useful; just like good design should be. via

Happy 1st year Anniversary blog… =) November 11, 2007

dThis november my official blog is celebrating its 1st year anniversary. I never expected it to last.. and people to even read it. I begin with this blog in sheer boredom and curiosity on “blogging”. This blog contains almost everything.. from my basic interest, my latest finds, inspirations, my new collection and events for one whole year.

To those who are part of my friends in the ever popular Facebook, as my status clearly says – Irene is excited for a fun filled week. Why? My friend from LA is coming home. Meaning party almost every night. Numerous out of town trip… But most importantly, I am totally looking forward to get my Japanese Fashion Magazine from him. Since, he’d be staying here in my apartment for a couple of days before we go out of town… I am so determined to get cool dining chairs. It doesn’t have to be expensive. So there, I am still on a look out hopefully i find before he comes over.

lo

I am so desperate to fix my apartment.. I think, the dining chairs will be the first step in fixing my place. Right now, it looks like a storage and work space and not really a home… I just wish, I just have the time. I am thinking of this look….

Or this look..
