    1. Imagine a world in which every single object you use or consume, a clock, a juice carton, toilet paper, a book, is a non-mass produced work of art. Is that possible? Japanese graphic designer Kenya Hara thinks so, creating his uniquely clean and fresh-looking products as if it is. Ever since Manet painted his Olympia artists have been trying to remove the institutional wall that separates art from the viewing experience, as it sits at a distance from us at salons, galleries and museums ("Of cour [...]

    2. “Вербализирането на дизайна също е вид дизайн” — това изречение седи само върху огромна бяла страница още преди началото на книгата и Кеня Хара се придържа към този дизайнерски принцип на писане през цялото време. Целта на книгата е същата като тази на дизайна по принцип [...]

    3. i don't know how to describe it, except lovely and bright and quiet with a dash of humor if you tilt your head -- anyway, this tome by Kenya Hara (graphic designer/art director of Muji) articulates some of his projects (a set of macaroni redesigns from architects to illustrate the nature of the discipline! redesigns of everyday products!) in a way that lays bare some of the energies behind his processes. i'm just rambling but it's really lovely there's this really beautiful analogy somewhere: so [...]

    4. The first part of Kenya Hara’s Designing Design devotes to redesign projects of daily products. For example, Shigeru Ban turned a round roll of toilet paper into a square roll. In term of functionality, a square roll creates more resistance than a round roll; therefore, it reduces usage. In addition, square rolls are easier to stack and fit easier than round rolls. The book features dozens of case studies that focuses on design thinking with fascinating visual examples. An eye-opening and beau [...]

    5. 사실 이 책은 너무 심플한 커버때문에 몇번이고 무수한 책들 사이에서 지나쳐버렸던 책이다. 하지만 주변에서 여러번 추천받았고 켄야하라의 디자인을 좋아했기에 꼭 읽어봐야 겠다고 생각하던중 이번에 도서관에서 빌리게 되었고, 책커버가 이렇게 디자인된 이유와 이 책이 추천도서에 오른 이유를 다 알게 되었다.이 책은 우리가 잘 알고있는 켄야 하라가 지향하는 단순함, [...]

    6. After reading White, I'm really fascinated by Kenya Hara’s work and thoughts. This book didn't disappoint: sure, it's a monograph basically, and monographs tend to be boring and self indulgent occasionally, but this isn't that at all. It's full of fascinating thoughts and ideas about what design should be, and how Hara's design intermixes with the world.

    7. I was worried at first that I was walking into another book by a designer with great competence at managing aesthetic detail but little ability to deal with theory in a rigorous way. This is not that. This is the most phenomenologically rigorous book I have read by a working designer in recent memory, as well as being impressively aware of its social context.Particularly deft is the treatment of sensation and perception, which is impressive not just in its accuracy, but in the deftness with whic [...]

    8. An amazing book the expresses the true sensibilities of design. The book takes you on a philosophical tour of Japanese design and enables you to appreciate it.

    9. A delightfully enlightening book on the process and mind of Muji's art director, Kenya Hara. Especially for those who are particularly disjoint from the creative world.

    10. I absolutely love Kenya Hara's design work. Sadly, the poorly written pages combine samples of work, reviews of other designers and random rants. It's slow to read and hardly engaging.

    11. Надзвичайно красива, філософська і складна. Перечитаю через 5 років ще раз.

    12. Para el Maestro Hara el diseño como se conoce debe ser redefinido, y es con esta convicción que su acercamiento al diseño es precisamente la redefinición del mismo.Reconocido como uno de los más exitosos diseñadores gráficos de nuestros tiempos Hara ha creado toda una aproximación a la disciplina misma. Reconocido por sus trabajos, en especial la curaduría de la imagen de la famosa cadena de tiendas MUJI que lleva desde el 2001, Kenya busca siempre comunicar al máximo con el mínimo n [...]

    13. A series of self-contained chapters, usually tying a particular theme or philosophical approach to design with a category or exhibition of work Kenya's been involved with. An unpretentious, robust modernist designer with delicate sensibilities. Muses on touch, the value of the empty vessel as a means of empowering the imagination, of the distinctive qualities and philosophy of Japanese aesthetics, of modernism, ecology and the origins of design.Design exists as a recognition of the infinite numb [...]

    14. A must read for designers and non-designers alike. Kenya Hara's sometimes fanatical approach to design and design ideas are refreshing and perhaps out of the ordinary. And he does it without being provocative or vulgar, but simply by going back to the basics of design, going back to our innermost and basic senses, by relooking at things that perhaps the naked eye might have missed, and then re-exploring them with our senses. I mean who would have known the simplicity of the macaroni design, and [...]

    15. A great introductory book for designers. I love the part where Hara explains the global vision of MUJI and his concept of white in the last half of the book. His philosophy for aesthetics in design is truly astounding and inspiring. I also adore his discussion of "What is Design?" in the very last chapter of the book. Here, he discusses in depth about the relation of design and technology, as well as the future direction for art and design development in a technological-driven society. However, [...]

    16. This book should be on every Designers reading list. Kenya Hara is a great writer who explores design with humility and honest inquiry (read: without ego). The opening chapters and the final chapter are the best, it is worth it to go through the entire book though.Why was this book so good? Kenya Hara's looks at design from a philosophy about how to approach life. Less eloquently than he phrases it, I summarize it as this; design is not a performance, but an inquiry into everyday life. His writi [...]

    17. I bought this book as a gift for a good friend and was so foolish as to not purchase a second copy at the same time. Scope this puppy out at and weep: it is out of print and new copies are commanding more than $1200. I finally snagged my own copy on an on-line auction site that shall remain nameless and am rapidly devouring it. There is balm in Gilead for the visually inept!

    18. This was one of the books that changed my view on design. The books is a compilation of projects that truly appreciates details and the way design refines such details that make a difference in our lives.

    19. Kenya Hara is a brilliant and influential designer, writer, curator, and business leader. This book is an elegant and poetic account of his ideas and projects. It is both fascinating to read and engaging to look at. It is also impeccably designed and produced by Hara, a true designer/author.

    20. Fascinating book on design written by a Japanese designer. I am inspired by a lot of his views and perspectives on how design impacts and influences the society and various forms it may take. Perfect for holiday or general interest reader too.

    21. Great and inspiring read - especially considering the time it was written. The philosophical considerations of Hara encourage one to think about the act of designing as well as the development of the profession. Defiantly one of the better books written by designers!

    22. Hara's a poet and a geniusis book reminds me of what's missing in the day to day creative process. I think it's a must read for any one in the creative field. It's a thing of beauty too - content and object, unified.

    23. I liked best the chapters on 'exformation' and 'white', as well as the analysis of the quality of experience of the senses in 'haptic.'

    24. I love Kenya Hara, and this books is beyond gorgeous. Forget reading it, I could just stare at it and be happy.

    25. One of the most thought-provoking and enjoyable books on design (or in general) that I've read in a very long time.

    26. 良かった。退屈に感じたり面白く感じたりが忙しかった。もっとゆっくり読んだほうが良かったかも知れない。

    27. I found this book profound and inspiring. I looked at everything differently after reading this book. It's slightly too long, but it's worth it.
