Have you peeped this documentary?
It's called Objectified, and it's by Gary Huswit, who also brought us Helvetica.
"Objectified is a feature-length documentary about our complex relationship with manufactured objects and, by extension, the people who design them. It’s a look at the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It’s about the designers who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis."It's not just about fancy chairs and record players, although it does feature them.
It's about environments, industrial engineering, consumerism, capitalism, identity, production, design, creativity, sustainability, and much more.
