Milk stool - a Sign of New Trend?

David Report blog shows another new product that is going to be part of the Milan Furniture Fair 2009 - the Milk stool by Swedish designer Staffan Holm. What impressed me most is his interest in making design that focuses on emotional sustainability rather than practical function - i.e. the possibilities of making design that becomes precious for people and makes us want to keep it for future generations. I think that this could be a new trend in design - to empower people to improve their quality of living not only via physical, economic and environmental sustainability, but also through emotional sustainability.

Or - time has come again when we are beginning to value good craftsmanship, exquisite details implementation and natural materials. Or both?
