franco clivio: shaper, designer, lecturer & collector, shows the complexity of the design process, not by design objects, but on the basis of things of everyday life. anonymous designed objects: simple, functional, yet elegant and astoundingly.

in my own way, as an observer of objects (especially utilitarian objects), designer & collector, i find franco’s book very inspiring, as you can see from the single attempt to capture the variations of a everyday tool, such as the humble pencil sharpener below . . .

pencil sharpeners, brass, aluminum, steel, plastic & leather

if you haven’t taken a look at franco clivio’s Hidden Design, Hidden Forms as of yet, i would encourage you to do so, soon . . .
