Why People Pay $$$ for Great Design.

Magnetic Curtain design by Florian Kräutli.

Not only is this curtain functional but it's completely original in its design.

Effective industrial designers remain some of the most respected artists because, not only do they have to understand great design and concept, but, additionally, they have to make things completely functional & execute them effectively in a huge variety of tangible/durable materials. It's more responsibility than i'd like to imagine but, when its done right, is very deserving of the big paychecks.
