NYT: “Six Designers Take On Some of the World’s Toughest Redesign Challenges”

We often hear the idiom “don’t fix something that isn’t broken,” but that is exactly what the designers in this New York Times article attempt to do. They “fix” the bike lock, cell tower, RX handout, baggage claims, hospital gowns, and toilets. I especially like the hospital gown because it’s made of comfortable cotton material and is actually fashionable. It mitigates the problem of otherness while in a hospital.

While the designs are beautiful and will probably not taken to fruition en masse, it is an interesting practice in what could be.
