DETAILS.com just posted their newest “60 Seconds” Q&A. This timethey sit down with Gary Hustwit, director of “Objectified.” The film
explores our relationships with manufactured items, everything from
cars to a potato peeler, and the designers behind them. Plus, Hustwit
tells us his favorite design items.
Q: Helvetica traced the history of a typeface, and in Objectified you examine industrial design—a category that includes things as disparate as potato peelers and sports cars. Is it tough to make movies with such seemingly uncinematic topics?
