From the New Yorker article: ". . . Ive’s view that bad industrial design often starts in ignorance of what a material can and cannot do." A lot of the so-called "revolutionary" designers (not just industrial designers, but all types) are guilty of this. One that comes to mind is a certain celebrated architect whose ground-breaking buildings and furniture are all invariably leaking, rotting, or falling apart a mere fifty years after they were built.
