i came across this video today. entitled 'design story: the decanter', it shows the design process of walter landor and associates designing a decanter in their studio in the 1960s.
the amount of work involved from start to finish is amazing to see, bearing in mind they had no computers then. all the drawings are done by hand, and all the research done without the use of the internet. the model making is brilliant too, with so much skill involved. this film is definitely worth finding 15 minutes to watch.
