Kanye West Loves Design And 'Hangs Around' Architects All The Time (VIDEO)

Kanye, Kanye, Kanye.

In a recent interview with BBC Radio1, Kanye West spoke a lot about design, but we're not talking his A.P.C clothing line. West actually expressed his admiration for architecture. "I want to do product, I am a product person," West said. "Not just clothing but water bottle design, architecture."

He admitted that he mostly "hangs around" architects and is currently working with five right now. "The time spent in a bad apartment, I can't get that back. But the education I can get from working on it is priceless."

He also said going to furniture exhibits and the Louvre have impacted him and his album "Yeezus." We're not completely surprised by this. In June, West told the New York Times that a Corbusier lamp was one of his greatest inspirations.

Don't we all feel that way?
