Objectified is the new documentary from Gary Hustwit, the man behind last year’s font-tastic (so so sorry), Helvetica. This movie explores industrial design as a world that most of us never stop and consider, yet one that surrounds and continuously influences us. As Hustwit describes it:
Objectified is a documentary about industrial design; it’s about the manufactured objects we surround ourselves with, and the people who make them. On an average day, each of us uses hundreds of objects. (Don’t believe it? Start counting: alarm clock, light switch, faucet, shampoo bottle, toothbrush, razor…) Who makes all these things, and why do they look and feel the way they do? All of these objects are “designed,” but how can good design make them, and our lives, better?
