Happy Meals and high-design

Fast-food chain Mcdonalds has just got hip. I was talking about democratic design the other day and looks like we do have an advocate. The new Mcdonalds at Edgware Road in London is kitted out, believe it or not, in Arne Jacobsen’s Egg and Swan chairs. Designer Jasper Morrison finds the idea ludicrous and describes it as a form of visual pollution to place such great design classics in an environment that is only ever associated with ‘junk-food’.

Whether it’s a publicity gimmick or an ignorant approach towards turning ‘junk’ into ‘jambalaya’, fast-food lovers aren’t complaining, Mr. Morrison.
