A quote from the redsign of the Aeron Chair got me thinking about engineering and design. Showing function as a form of design.
The Aeron chair was made for function, yet gained an appeal because of it's design.
The Pompidou in Paris is much the same. By showing how the building functions, you create a unique design.
The iconic Nike Air Max One shows you what's on the inside. The function is exposed to create a design.
