ALTERNATIVES MALLORCA has designed the Christmas Decoration for the Intermodal Station in Palma de Mallorca (Spain) for second year. Two single non-typical elements with a taste of Christmas evoke us of that special period of the year. The result is really very pleasing for the beauty outcoming from its simplicity.

Ant chair by Arne Jacobsen
Courtesy of Fritz Hansen"So how do we know if a design is good? Simply put, good design raises spirits and makes life a little easier. Good design is essentially a matter of problem solving. Engineers solve mechanical problems. Designers solve human problems -or should. If the design does not work well, it may be art, but it is not good design. To make an object work, functionally and aesthetically, it must be placed in its proper context. A chair must fit into the room. The room must fit into the house.The house must fit into the street. The street must fit into the city."

I knew about this publication in Isuu, on jpspradley's profile, and became immediately interested on it.. His author tells us about Dieter Ram’s famous Ten Principles for Good Design. In 1980 this accomplished industrial designer asked himself if his design was good design and established these concise criteria. According to them, GOOD DESIGN IS:
• Innovative - useful - aesthetic - self-explanatory - unobtrusive - honest – durable – thorough - concerned with the environment – as little design as possible…
It is worth reading calmly if you enjoy design.
After many trials we begin new Moret&Maura on Design. Our blog is devoted to Design: Product, Interior, Glass, Lighting and Furniture design. We will show Joan Moret's productions, their Exhibitions and Events, their Decoration projects together with ALTERNATIVES... wishing to make you enjoy about all that as much as we do!
