Sensing Nature, Designing for delight

I'm loving this beautiful installation by designer Tokujin Yoshioka at the Mori Art Museum in Japan. Snow is made entirely of feathers, their movements flowing in a large container subtly give the on-looker feelings of peace and for me conjure up a light delight.

If you haven't heard of Tokujin, I suggest you to visit his site. He designs for many disciplines and has some awesome work.

I found this project on the website Aesthetic Joy. Blog owner Ingrid Fetell makes her case for the necessity of designing for delight. Although discipline tells us that we should design for a purpose, a strategy and results. Designing for delight has it's place and sometimes we just need a pretty picture to look at. Check out her site, she has some wonderful post.
