The design of PRIME is dominated by products that their function, their production, their origin, their age and so contribute to the outside and make them visible. This product explained himself and supposedly banal subject, normative design paradigms. But they are also enlightening, or do the whole bugbear than continuous attempt to deceive the consumers?
It’s about the unknown, the adventure, the mystery, because the user is equal to the Heroes in myth to refuse the first call of the uncertainty around then to make the difficult tests in the adventure of consumption and refined and return enriched. The product is the location of this mystery, which uncertain, the first fights against the use, similar to the Black Box has the analytical view of the user diffusely scattered and its development allows only slowly.
The “unidentified object” is a logical development, an experiment in a feature designer world – not to be confused with the absence of design. An object like a black hole its aura and its aesthetic radiated sucks, takes in and they disappear brings. For just as the center of a black hole, a cosmic object of extreme mass and density, is the “unidentified object” the chance a condensation of meaning. While it appears empty, it is not.
The “unidentified object” takes control of perception and withdraws the design of the access to the channels through which it from his audience is included.
