The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.
You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.
If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.
Design must be functional, and functionality must be translated into visual aesthetics without any reliance on gimmicks that have to be explained.
When I design a wedding dress with a bustle, it has to be one the bride can dance in. I love the idea that something is practical and still looks great.
The principle of the design - the harmony, rhythm and balance are all the same with interior and fashion design.
Eventually everything connects - people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se.
Successful design is not the achievement of perfection but the minimization and accommodation of imperfection.
