Stefan Sagmeister at Forward Festival Munich
Stefan Sagmeister presented his view on beauty on the Forward festival at the BMW World forum in Munich.
It was the first time that I saw him live actually, and I thoroughly enjoyed his interesting view on the notion of beauty. He believes that beauty is not given enough attention in the current design scene. He argued that designers don’t dare to proclaim beauty as a function of the design.
He mentioned Prof. Helmut Leder, a leading researcher in the field of cognitive psychology, as an important source to understand the role of beauty in humans. http://ppcms.univie.ac.at/index.php?id=2559
He also presented two pieces of his poetic work I haven’t had seen… enjoy:
