The things that we design are things that you can touch. Every object has a "shape" that allows for this. We aren't constrained by existing concepts or images; we capture the beauty at the core of things that are completely new. And then we move towards the beauty that they should have. We don't need things that are of no use to us. We strive for things that are not swayed by the times, that will continue to remain with us tomorrow, and all the tomorrows after that.
