Design in Everyday Life

After watching the movie Objectified, I realized exactly how big of a role design plays in my day to day life. The movie was incredibly eye opening and put a new spin on the items I use each day. Every bookshelf I pass, staircase I walk up, and chair I sit in has a huge element of design to it. It is so much more than just practicality. The seat of a chair, curves of the arm-rest, and shape of the back board is carefully thought out and all are conscious decisions.  Design has to do with appearance, usefulness, and innovation. Every design is carefully thought out and uniquely created. Basically, before Objectified, I never had put any thought in to the fact that design is everywhere and plays such a huge role in my life.
