What the Cooper-Hewitt show reveals is the extent to which Dionysus now rules over mainstream design. No big-name designer comes attached to Apple's iMac and iBook, for example. But these electronic Lolitas could be the symbols of this show. With their lollipop colors, swelling lines and toylike ease of operation, they hark back to the sexy red plastic Valentine typewriter Sottsass designed for Olivetti in 1969. And the popularity of these machines demonstrates the degree to which design today is erotically driven.few nice features -- helps explain why the iBook is one the most popular laptops sold in retail, especially among students.
