100 Objects Series 3

With the 100 Objects Series Daniel Weil wanted to inject a cultural approach into the design of technology, by, for example, hand-drawing electronic circuits that allowed disparate elements to be plugged into sockets in a floating arrangement, maximising the freedom of the design. After the success of the first series of 100 Objects created as a commission in the early 1980s by a Milanese legal firm for 100 clients, Weil developed two more. The series were a significant influence on later critical design approaches addressing accelerating rates of technological change.
