Abstract
Artifacts are intrinsically intended to accompany the lives of individuals, sometimes even helping them to build their identity. Products are living entities, which can dynamically change their appearance or even their function. As well as wrinkles, scars or human defects are a testament to the passage of time and experience for the man also wear, yellowing and inhuman defects are symptomatic of the evolution and uniqueness of the artifact. The imperfections become the narrative elements that describes the specific experience of the artifact, its peculiarities and the use made of it. So the imperfection becomes a value to be found, as was the case in the East with the influence of wabi sabi, "the beauty of things changing, imperfect and temporary." "Imperfect" is taken as synonymous with real, natural, inevitable human. Assign value to the imperfection means designing products that grow old, change, can be repaired; means to stimulate the emotional bond between user and product, lengthen the life cycle and, above all, accept the presence of a non-controllable variable that often "change the ending of the story." The book explores the value attributable to the imperfections of the objects, such as proposing an unmistakable symptoms of uniqueness, supporters of strengthening the emotional bond, in time and space, in a dialectic between past and present, between eastern culture and western ferment.
