The miseducation of contemporary design

Taking inspiration from the visual language and aesthetics found in decrepit urban surroundings in order to find new stimulus and inject vital energy into tired creative ambits is a consolidated practice in art and music. In design, it is more recent, but has entered galleries and museums with a disruptive stir. A few of the most distinctive flag-bearers of the phenomenon are Rooms, Virgil Abloh, Guillermo Santomà and Jerszy Seymour.
