  • Kinda boring and seen before. I agree with the “what a waste of material” comment.

    Where’s the creativity? The world needs good design!!!

  • i can’t say i like this, nor support the (what I think to be) theory behind it, when i was in china i know the chinese i worked with, when given a chance, really liked learning to come up with there own, original ideas & they like learning, i can’t help but feel that this is a few steps backwards, there is lots of really good, original ideas coming from Germany, why promote this one?

  • Out of context, in fact no context, therefore everything about it is irrelevant.

    what a waste of time and materials.
