The iPhone is bought for its good design ("Gute Form") and easy handling, both of which distinguish the Apple design from other brand devices. To mark the anniversary of the resignation in 1930 of the second Bauhaus director, Hannes Meyer, who criticised Gropius''s "good designs" and even then called for the formulation of an "ecological design", the symposium discusses Apple''s updating of post-war German design. The fetishised iPhone is, moreover, a crude product of an exploitation of global wage differences that fails to leave a progressive ecological footprint in Asia. Lectures, films and panel discussions argue the significance of this obvious discrepancy between good design in consumption terms and the poor design of the manifestly non-sustainable production of electronic devices.
