Let it speak for itself

I saw this yesterday at an exhibition titled, cultureNOW, at the Boston Society of Architects Space. Since we seem to live in a time of excessively bullshitting everything that we do or creating some ridiculous post-rationalization of what we design, this is a refreshing quote.

The bike is simple, highlighted not by glam or extraneous description of this and that, but instead by its essential form, clean tones and necessary connections. No bullshit, just designed and built.

Every now and again I fall into the excessive bullshit category. This is a refreshing take on design. Just shut up and build it, let it speak for itself.
