Today's consuming culture encourages us to want everything bigger, better and faster, leaving us living our lives in a hyperreal world, where we are willing to self-deceive to fulfil desires.

"It may occur to someone working in design to produce objects that are of no use to industrial civilization as it is set up at present, but that serve to release creative energies, to suggest possibilities, to stimulate awareness, to bring people's feet back onto the planet."

Ettore Sottsass (1917-2007)
