    Not very coherent David knowing the way you think about the vomitdesign of Ross Lovegrove to invite him as well and so Karim Rhashid.
    YOu must have had some whiskeys too much to invite them!

    Why do you invite on one hand great and capable people like , Ilkka Suppanen, Gert Wingards, Satyendra Pakhalé and Bjarke Ingels and on the other hand designjokes as Ross Selflove aka copydesigner Nr.1, Karim Rhashid gay cloud design and Stephen Burks ecoshit.
    I am losing my confidence in you David!

    The selection of the designers is on one side really bad. Especially Lovegorve is the worst designcopier and should be excluded from all shows. He made his money on screwing clients in continuation but not on designing.
    Also Ilse Crawford is by now a non-sense to bring. She bored enough people in your past design boosts.
    Karim Rashid should stay home as well and Burks I agree with Designdevil is really only good at knitting his own baskets in Africa.
    Why don´t you invite serious people like Martin Sprouse or other architects on the level of Ingels?

    I don’t know who you are “Vampiro”, “designdevil” and “lovedesign” but you are spreading quite a lot of vomit yourselves as well…

    Come on David don’t be upset about people who hate the loveshit design and Rashid cream
    Design could well do without these folks even if the first one is definetly much worse than the latter

    Come and listen and experience and then judge. I hope I can inspire you. whether you like my work, or Ross’s or others, maybe you will change your minds. maybe you won’t. but keep an open mind. globalove, Karim
