    The mobile phone/smart phone! No other product is as ubiquitous as this, not only useful for business but also for everyday life.

    Electric washing machine(s)

    When we are talking about “greatest” design we should think about products or products categories that changed our daily life in a massive social and political way.

    I choose the electric washing machine because it had – compared to other household appliances / inventions) a huge impact in context of women independance.

    Not specifically a product but it formed our product’s today and how we think of design, hence it’s important to design. A idea and visual is needed to form a product, creativity is the core of design. A foundation which forms every product we use today such as ipods to designer furniture are inspired by trend. Design has followed trend since the 90’s, creating multiple design movements which connected society and new inventions together even til now. Not being a product, it act’s as a core for products which allow them to stand where they currently are in the industry. Without trend we can’t understand what is current fashion for design and how it re-creates itself.
    The best product was Trend.
