    Isn’t repairable a subset of durable? Being rather resourceful with the “junk” of others, I’d say so.

    “Repairable” would be, I think, something entirely personal. I’m not very handy, but there are still things that I find incredibly useful, beautiful, and durable — in fact, that durability helps me not *need* to know how to fix the thing!

    Or, as William Morris said:

    “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”

    Is this another card about you?

    The smallishness of the center calls to mind Mies van der Rohe and Less is More.

    If it is just one, the only criteria is “Appropriate”. That says it all.

    How about: Cheap?

    Defined problem + (attractive) visual solution = design

    This is a very Vulcan idea: the functional beauty of things, they noted, oft increased the productivity of said thing.

    Is it a Apple’s product definition? What about a MacBook or an iPod? :)

    This should have been the cover of our design textbook in college. Hell, this should have *been* our design textbook.

    @Lenin: You forgot “useful”.

    This chart is pure win.

    Jessica is quoting Marcus Vitruvius Pollio from 1C, BC who said, architecture aspires to “firmitas, utilitas, venustas.” Even after 2000 years it’s hard to improve. Mark quotes Mitch Kapor, but I prefer Jessica’s version.
