25 Magazine Issue 4: the Five senses

Piet Houtenbos on the sense of touch, 2015


"A design is just an idea until you have something in your hands. When you first sit in a chair, touch wood or hold a makeup brush you're flooded with immediate and direct feedback. Tactility gives you so many cues for what to do next and guides you to aesthetic places you didn't think of. It's really more than inspiration, it's the truest test of your ideas."
