A Starck juicer. Let’s be honest, it looks good but if it worked well it would look like and work like the one you get in a Chinese store. Its form does not follow function. Its form follows context, the context being the smart kitchen of the modern guy that needs a design icon to set the scene.

Have a browse at great packaging design solutions from a great agency and you’ll always find something that’s not so great and we’re quick to say “that’s not very good”.

Well form doesn0t follow function. Form follows context. The context being the client made a mistake with what they asked for or they paid 100€ for the job.

In the context of “let0s have some fun” these examples from http://ototodesign.com are superb.

P.S. The hard question always is what’s the context. I’d buy the ladle for myself and the sub as a gift.
