I've been thinking lately of a concept I'll call "elevated design". 

By elevated design, I mean design where it's clear that the designer/s have

given careful thought and attention to:

a) the selection of materials.

b) the totality of the object (how the thing looks/feels/works)

c) the experience the user will have when engaged with the design.

This concept can be expanded to include the idea of "good works" - social and environmental, for instance.

Here are three recent examples of "elevated design" that I've come across:

Bowers & Wilkins P5 Mobile Hi-Fi Headphones
