The regal feeling of being in the original placement with all of these gorgeous art pieces would have made me feel like I was part of some sort of royal family or something. I think they absolutely belong and should be viewed as a set with all the pieces displayed, it makes it a much more shimmering and fancy display having them all tied together. Seeing each item one by one just wouldn't have the same feeling of "wow" opposed to seeing all of this beautiful gold together.

How did goods produced for the French kings embody prestige?


As in todays world, there is controversy about the 1% buying extremely lavish items such as Lamborghini's or Ferrari's, when their really isn't a huge need for them other than for them to have fun. But the reality is that they're still helping the economy and countless families by buying these moving, functional art pieces. It really is the same back then, I'm sure that the tradesmen were payed well for their creations for the kings of the time, and the recognition they got will live even longer then they will.

When I think "good design", the thought of being engaged and active comes to mind. I want to be able to work through something physically or mentally to get to the end goal or the end message. I don't think everything should just be laid out in front of you as is, I feel like design should be a journey of sorts. I'll take the obvious example of Apple's website to be in the top tier of good, successful design. There's motion, not too much text, interactive video and photos, the possibilities are endless. Bad design, however, is unnavigable, doesn't match the topic, or just doesn't fit, whether physically or conceptually. It can also just be that the design is bad because it's a lie, or it's just misleading and results in a negative outcome for the user.
