Paola Antonelli Quotes

Author Quote
Paola Antonelli “People think that design is styling. Design is not style. It’s not about giving shape to the shell and not giving a damn about the guts. Good design is a renaissance attitude that combines technology, cognitive science, human need, and beauty to produce something that the world didn’t know it was missing.”
Paola Antonelli (source)
Paola Antonelli “In an ideal world, social responsibility would be a prerequisite for design, and designers would vow to produce beautiful, useful, positive, responsible, functional, and economical things and concepts that are meaningful additions to–or sometimes subtractions from–the world we live in. Indeed, design deserves such thoughtful consideration.”
Paola Antonelli (source)
Paola Antonelli “Designers stand between revolutions and everyday life. They’re able to grasp momentous changes in technology, science, and society and convert those changes into objects and ideas that people can understand.”
