Design is being democtraized

I read a quote from star designer Karim Rasid that went like this: "Design is being democratized. Our entire physical landscape has improved and that makes people more critical as an audience." If that is true, and I believe it is, then how does a car like this one - the Nissan Cube - make it off the production line?


An asymmetrical spin on the "toaster" that is Toyota's Scion, it's as crazy as the juxtaposition of the Eiffel tower with a temple in Kyoto don't you think?


  1. Seriously? Its damn cute - tha's how. Boxy little cars are the rage with the young urban chic - which makes about as much sense as those fashionable pumps that look like the toes were lopped off with an axe.

  2. I love this little car, it always reminds me of the Fred Flintstone cartoon. If I purchased one, I'd have Pebble and BamBam stenciled on it!
