  1. Switzerland? How strange…

  2. Hmm, I don’t think I’m down with that matrix. Seems incomplete, not to mention a mal-approached way to organize design movements and influences. (I saw someone already commented on the lack of Switzerland). I’ve seen the same information better arranged on a timeline.
