Are product designers the new rock stars?
You may decide so after seeing Gary Hustwits latest doc, Objectified,
which looks at how everyday objects from toothbrushes to door handles
have become contemporary objets darts.This fascinating film
gets into the creative minds of designers like Marc
Newson, maker of the million dollar Lockheed Lounge (pictured), and Karim
Rashid, the brainchild behind the Garbo plastic garbage pail.
Finally, some insight into our obsession with Ikea water glasses.
Objectified, tickets $10; until July 16 at Cinema du Parc, 3575
Parc Ave., Montreal, 514-281-1900, www.cinemaduparc.com
