…around our homes cease to be objects and instead become increasingly objets d’art ? It may depend upon whom you ask. Pose the question to the Danes, ever the vigilant force in streamlining and minimalism, and they will tell you that everything, regardless of size or use, should be designed with only the most dedicated aesthetic in mind. Ask the Italians and they will inform you everything must be treated with artistic flair. Otherwise, what’s the point ?
