Wabi Sabi

Wabi sabi is the new design philosophy which I would like to explore. Since I have technically finished school, I am going to be spending my time looking for work. But in the long term, I am going to look into the aesthetic and functional qualities of objects as time passes.

This is the image that caused my interest. This old, worn phone looks a lot better than the new one. The same is true for leather goods and jeans. I wonder how this concept can be transferred to mass produced products in a purposeful way.

Is it possible for objects to develop custom functionality with age?
