“Ikea has now turned its fire on expensive “designer” furniture – and on the pretensions of designers themselves. With its audacious new advertising campaign featuring spoof celebrity designer van den Puup and a made-up protest group called Elite Designers Against Ikea, the flat-pack giant is asking: why spend £3,000 on a celebrity-designed sofa when you can get an equally good one for £300?”
I just saw a mtv show about Puff Daddy and after creating an horrible line of clothing he has now a new card in his set… he s a CAR designer… he did a collaboration with Lincoln for a Navigator I think… The designer from Lincoln said working with him was a nightmare… he said it was because P. Diddy was such a perfectionnist but we all know the real reason… hehehe
I think the Design should be left to people who care a bit much more than just the money… and, as things goes along, we’ll get better product which will be well adapted to the public
tagging a Celebrity’s name do sell and that’s what’s scaring me… there’s Ralph Lauren Paint for walls… what’s next ?? Prada pan cakes ?
