  • "1Interesting that the only seated rider in the video is on a different frame, every other rider is standing.. The frame looks inherently week at the seat unless flexing at that point is somehow spring suspension."

  • "1Very sad to hear of Ralphs's passing. Design's loss. I first met Ralph at George Nelson's office over 40 years ago. Nelson, who was a very good writer, thought Ralph's perception and humor were best ever. I hadn't spoken to Ralph for many years -- this is a sad reminder to keep in touch. Rest in Peace."

  • " I'm sorry, I don't understand the value. If you take a vintage car and strip it to a shell, then replace the entire chassis, drive train, electronics, glass, upholstery, what have you preserved, the vintage look? In this case, at an extraordinary cost, you are left with a brand new all-be-it vintage-looking car. I certainly don't have a problem with what ICON is doing, I quite like it, but don't equate it with preserving the past, being environmentally sensitive, or building a better car than a current production car of the same cost. "

  • "I ordered a new Boxster in the summer of 1997, delivered November of 97 as a 98 model. It, contrary to the video, was built in Zuffenhausen. In 1998 the production was a Valmet. Boxsters produced in 96 and 97 as 97 and 98 models years were real Porsches made in Germany. Don't believe everything you hear."

  • "Rain, I agree you. That said, Human Dimension and Interior Space isn't building code. The International Building Code (at least 2009 version) specifies gardrail height to be 42". The NYC building may specify something different, I haven't looked for years. I'm not sure if the handrail on an escalator is also a gardrail - probably is. The 40" the reporter measured may be more depending on where the measurement was take and what the actual height requirement is. People behaving stupidly get what they get.   "

  • "Thanks for finding this interview. I know that I'm dating myself but my first job out of school ( 1972) was at Raymond Loewy / Wm Snaith in NYC. It was a very large office at the time, maybe 80 to 100 designers. I was in the Industrial Design department working on the last bits of Skylab, a City Bus for the DOT, and the beginnings of a new Presidential helicopter. What a great, real, education for a young designer just out of grad school. I loved every minute of it. Mr. Loewy's hair wasn't quite as white. "
