Ettore Sottsass – More Human Scale

Why are these strange blue boxes scattered about and bolted to the floor of a Palo Alto living room? Love the architectural discussion in this +60 Minutes segment about +IDEO‘s founder David Kelley’s home. Have a watch here.

and I plan to learn more about

after watching the segment. I used to just know how to wow but I guess I am older now that I don’t have the urge nor need to wow. Human scale will serve me just fine.
