Dumb is the New Clever



Is there a name for the kind of beauty which arrises when the dumbest possible problem is answered by the dumbest possible solution? Elegant answers to complex problems have been given far too much attention: there is just as much humanity in this radiator/door conundrum as there is in any orthodox example of perfection in design.
