  • "UPs looks more mature but kinda outdated ... Amazon looks more friendly, much bigger also ? FedEx is a joke designwise, but it looks based on an existing design/platform, maybe more reliable in the short-term.I'd vote UPS."

  • "The main problem I see with the VW concpet is that these structures are not credible. I don't believe they gain weight, I don't believe the structure is more sound. The seat foot is ridiculous in itself (and will be a mess to clean). It is style over design.I agree with the rets of your take, GD can be very interesting for intrenal structure, and maybe for other uses, the exemples so far are quite bad."

  • "I get that the sheet cannot be stamped at this thickness (3mm), but first, no one need 3mm on all the planes and second, did these guys ever heard about rolling sheets ? It's used in boat making since mid-XIXth century ... with cylindrical AND ellipsoid rolls, so lots of curve shapes can be produced. I'm not buying the "there's no other choice"."

  • "If I remember well, Fiat used to make interior panels from cold molded cellulose, several parts of the Multipla are done so.Also this quote "material that they claim is 1/5th the weight of steel, but more than five times stronger" is hardcore bullshit without some measures/examples. Also, like many other "ecological" materials, no one is talking about the binding ingredients, 99% of the time a resin like epoxy making the whole stuff non-recyclable. But it's nice that they're pushing alternative to oil-based plastic, so ..."

  • "I've spent some freelance time in a design studio working for several brands of toothbrush, and I can assure you that "the least amount of plastic" is probably the last thing that comes into consideration when the client decides on design. Consumers love weight. It's reassuring. Brand managers don't care at all."

  • "Very interesting article that echoes a lot of my thoughts on the CNC process (plus much more woodworking knowledge on your side of course). The main problem IMHO with CNC, from a designer's point of view, is that you have two choices : own the "workshop" style, with furniture that looks like tools (which I think is pretty cool, if refined) or set yourself apart by adding unnecessary curves (see the small table left on first row of article's images).How to, as you say "cut ideas that I saw into something that I want in my house" ? I started my solution some months ago (https://www.centenaires.net/products/laplace-41), which is basically matching the thickness of the boards with 2D cuts, allowing the shapes to flow, bringing an, I think, unique aesthetic. Cheers, Marc."
