Transcript of a speech by Richard Seymour, Director of SeymourPowell, at the Designing Demand event.
A story, a work of art, a face, a designed object — how do we tell that something is beautiful? And why does it matter so much to us? Designer Richard Seymour explores our response to beauty and the surprising power of objects that exhibit it.
As a partner in seymourpowell, Richard Seymour designs idea-driven products — from household goods to trains and motorcycles.
"Whatever we design - products, services, environments, systems - we have an opportunity to influence user behaviour. Bringing together ideas from different disciplines, ‘Design with Intent’ aims to give designers a way of addressing areas where influencing behaviour would provide benefits for users and for society in general - particularly, reducing the environmental impacts of product use.
