10 Commandments of Design November 21, 2007

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
