Some of the hilariously pretentious design I’ve spied coming out of Milan this past week reminded me of perhaps my favourite film of all time, Jacques Tati’s Mon Oncle  – a delightfully playful farce on the development of late 50s modernism and technology, and the way it changed the physical and emotional landscape of Paris. If you have not seen it – rectify immediately. HF.
