The trend towards brutalist design.
Things which are bigger, more powerful, more imposing, more bulky, more imposing, more powerful. A trend away from the Steve Jobs/Jony Ive vision of thinner, lighter, purer.
The question is:
Is this ‘progress’? Is this a step forwards or backwards?
And the question is —
What do we desire from our tools, devices, and design aesthetics? More power towards what ends?
