Love Design is a project that explores the multifaceted relationship between design and positive feelings such as affection, desire, pleasure and romance, but also jealousy, distance, separation and pain. Published by daab, love design the book presents a selection of unusual products, objects, graphics and textiles specifically designed to enhance (or distort) our pleasurable sense of togetherness in every possible (and impossible) way. during the milan furniture fair 09, love design the exhibition presents the works of 20 outstanding designers taken from the book. the selection includes new products and special editions, in categories like fine textile, sound wave jewelry, blushing lighting, erotic tableware, lover’s furniture and more surprising delights. this exhibition questions the very meaning of the word ‘love’, the beginning and the ending of what binds us together and tears us apart.
