Documentary Film Of The Day: Objectified...

This film just came out on DVD a few days ago. It's by Gary Hustwit, the same director behind the Helvetica movie. This one looks at industrial design and the incredible amount of thought that goes into objects we use everyday, both in terms of their form and their functionality. Like his last film, I really like the sleek photography and subdued style Hustwit employs. If you're interested in design you should enjoy this one. You can watch the trailer HERE.

Netflix it HERE.

This looks like something I would really get into, thanks for the tip Chris

Nice looking video. But what if we weren't a consumer society (world)? What if practical trumped design? What if there was a shortage of synthetics? What if 3rd world warriors went totally berserk on modernity? Just curious.

Bill- I was thinking some of the same things as I started watching it. The movie addresses sustainability to some degree, but I think another movie is necessary to really cover it extensively.

Objectified is a documentary directed by Gary Hustwit,Almost all of us have become used to using numerous things that are a result of industrial design, without ever trying to understand how they get the look and feel that they have. You can watch objectified movie from this website...
