DESIGNS THAT NEVER GET
OLD
What makes a product a design classic
-- a gadget, tool, vehicle, or furnishing
that stays in  production for decades,
constantly reaping revenues? Editors at
London's Phaidon Press have come  up
with a definition that might surprise
you: a commercial object that uses
innovative, new  materials or cutting-
edge technology, united with a
timeless, simple form. In other words,
most of  today's design classics were
yesterday's radical experiments
