Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at the San Jose Museum of Art, Blobjects and Beyond is the first comprehensive survey of the new fluidity in contemporary design. Whether hard or soft, cheerful or sinister, practical or conceptual, blobjects represent a decisive turn away from the hard edges and angles of conventional modernism. From the iconic iMac to Karim Rashid's evocative plastics to the ergonomic computer mouse, blobjects are the defining objects of our time, molding our visual vocabulary for years to come. Blobjects and Beyond is a celebration of the global explosion of amorphic, organic, and curvaceous design.Volkswagen Beetle 1 998; Design: Jay Mays, Freeman Thomas of Audi/ Volkswagen Simi Valley Design Center; Size: 4.92 x 5.08 x 1 3.32 ft.; ...
