UnBeige, the mediabistro.com design blog, touches upon Philippe Starck‘s evaluation of the Kindle. Starck doesn’t seem impressed by Amazon.com‘s design for its new electronic book reader, saying “he designer wasn’t quite humble enough to completely disappear,” which made the final product too much about the object itself rather than the content it’s meant to deliver. “It’s a little sad because the concept is modern, but the design is less modern… No no, it is almost modern.”
