by Kelsey Keith It's something every designer, design writer, and design collector wonders constantly: Will this piece of furniture I made/ hailed in print/ bought still be in vogue in ten (or fifty) years' time? Julie Lasky addresses the issue in this week's New York Times, asking curators and design-world luminaries to select what pieces they think are destined to become future classics. (We've done the same, as evidenced in our July/August issue.) And while what was namechecked in the Times article is mostly worthy—notably Konstanin Grcic's One chair for Magis, nominated by four the dozen people Lasky polled, we want to open the floor to other ideas. What do you think will represent our present era of design in 2050? A few experts weigh in.
