Zócalo Public Square presents...

Deyan Sudjic, "Why Do We Lust For Objects?"

From sleek silvery laptops to shiny new Mini Coopers, objects enthrall us. iPhones compel us to camp outside the Apple store, designer sunglasses set us back significantly more than a drugstore pair, and somehow, even the noise of a luxury car door shutting can sound somehow “expensive.” Objects seem capable of manipulation and seduction, building and sustaining a desire for design, even over performance, function and a fair price. Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design Museum London and author of The Language of Things: Understanding the World of Desirable Objects, visits Zócalo to explore the power of design and what it means for art and commerce.
