Description - One Hundred - an Experiment on Myself A Designer's Reckoning with Things by Moritz Grund
Can you live your life with just one hundred things? That is the question that product designer Mortiz Grund asks in One Hundred, the winner of the prestigious Wilhelm Braun Feldweg award for critical writing in the field of design. Grund, a co founder of Berlins Sustainable Design Center, chose just one hundred personal items as a starting point for intelligent observations on products, relationships, and meaning in the everyday world. His living experiment lasted seven years and is documented here in a thoughtful collage of notes, observations, stories and other texts. Equal parts sustainable manifesto, performance art and design philosophy, One Hundred asks what design really means in the age of consumption.
