I just saw an ad for the Kone vac by Dirt Devil. I hope that they did not pay Rashid too much for this design. Not only is it a terrible vacuum and awkward to hold but the claim that it is at home in the home is absurd. A shiny plastic cone sitting in the corner of the room? Who wants that beside Karim? I think that the hypothesis is great but the execution is feable. I think that it reduces the legitimacy of the entire profession when crap like this becomes so high profile. Dirt Devil should know better. Last time I heard they have some pretty talented in house designers.
