Quote of Note | Bill Moggridge

“When you go to designers’ houses, you see a lot of kitsch. Instead of living the work they do, they like to see the exaggerated edges of how things can go. And kitsch has a kind of shameless enthusiasm that allows you to revel in these values, like excessive decoration or the overly bold use of color, that are not quite respectable. It’s the same sort of appeal as postmodernism, except kitsch is done with such self-consciousness. It’s fun for its own sake. You can’t say it’s elegant or beautiful, but you can say it’s a lot of fun.”

-Industrial designer, IDEO co-founder, and Cooper-Hewitt president Bill Moggridge in Sunday’s The New York Times, with regard to his love of vintage trailers
