It’s not everyday that you get to break something on purpose. But today, well today, you do! In fact, you don’t buy it if you break it; you break it if you buy it!!!!  Meet Mey and Boaz Kahn of Studio Kahn in Israel. They like to break some things they make in order to make them useful. Mey and Boaz have a lot to say about design and their belief that…”good design must reveal cultural issues and ask questions about our way of living” is absolutely lovely.

They do create lots of things that don’t break. In fact, they’ve won awards for their Ecooler system, which is a somewhat stunningly spectacular piece of design. Brenda Laurel probably said it best – “A design isn’t finished until somebody is using it.” And I think the Kahns would agree.
