Luxury and design: Another time, Another place
Luxury and design: Another time, Another place
Luxury design is characterised by its subjectivity. A bewildering variety of luxurious options face the contemporary consumer and yet, as this essay argues, there are certain aesthetic and conceptual features that permeate luxury design. Most insistent of these are its ahistorical, immersive and dysfunctional characteristics. Increasingly contemporary luxury design is experienced as a set of narrative possibilities and, therefore, luxury’s mediated image in film and television provide the basis for this chapter.

Abstract

Luxury design is characterised by its subjectivity. A bewildering variety of luxurious options face the contemporary consumer and yet, as this essay argues, there are certain aesthetic and conceptual features that permeate luxury design. Most insistent of these are its ahistorical, immersive and dysfunctional characteristics. Increasingly contemporary luxury design is experienced as a set of narrative possibilities and, therefore, luxury’s mediated image in film and television provide the basis for this chapter.
