Function follows beauty
I went to the graduation show at the dutch design week in Eindhoven. I saw the project of the French designer Mathieu Frossard. He presented his series of objects ‘Function follows Beauty’ as part of the Design Academy.
Mathieu is re-thinking functionality from the vantage point of beauty and thats why this project is so inspiring to me.
“Beauty is based on subjectivity, and thus it is hard to combine with rationality. It is this openness in its definition that makes beauty so interesting. While beauty and function cohabit in every design proposal, they remain two disparate, almost opposite, elements. Beauty is linked with the physical representation of a project.”
