I like the tableware. Could do with those cup plugs...

A movie you should keep an eye out for is Objectified. According to the website;

"Objectified is a feature-length documentary about our complex relationship with manufactured objects and, by extension, the people who design them. It’s a look at the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It’s about the designers who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis. It’s about personal expression, identity, consumerism, and sustainability."

I haven't seen this movie as yet but would very much like the opportunity to do so. It was created by Gary Huswit who also created the doco film Helvetica. If you have any further information on this film, please let DCOSA know.

Nice Website for Daily Visit

Industrial Design Served - Here is a nice little page to see some work from around the world and show off your own designs. Each design appears to have its own sub-page but apart from that it seems nice a simple and too the point. Enjoy.
