Little Boxes
Introduced by Stephen Bayley
There is real modern art in your home. Telephones and typewriters, buckets and pens are genuinely more expressive of our age than many paintings and sculpture.
Industrial designers, the people who shaped such everyday objects have for years worked to the strict uncompromising rule that Form Follows Function - or the three Fs. Now all this is changing because the internal function of machines is often little more than a chip or a printed circuit, and if designers stick to the three Fs we seem destined to end up with little black boxes.
So Horizon investigates how important our relationship with humble machines has become. How our phones and typewriters need to be recognisable and friendly. Tom Wolfe , Dieter Rams , Ettore Sottsass and Raymond Loewy offer widely-differing views on the history and present problems of industrial design, from the severe formalism of the Bauhaus to the exotic excesses of American cars from the 50s.
