Created To Be Sold

Dustin Curtis on selecting “the best” products he can find, quotes Sori Yanagi, a Japanese product designer:

Things that are easy to use survive, regardless of what is fashionable, and people want to use them forever. But if things are created merely for a passing vogue and not for a purpose, people soon get bored with them and throw them away. The fundamental problem is that many products are created to be sold, not used.

Wow.
