Victor Papanek

"Much recent design has satisfied only evanescent wants and desires,
while the genuine needs of man have often been neglected by the designer.”

"Only a small part of our responsibility lies in the area of aesthetics.”

"The only important thing about design is how it relates to people."

"Design is the conscious and intuitive effort to impose meaningful order."
