Obama intervened on a ban due to standards essential patents. There is a world of difference between SEP and design patents. SEP are necessary for the products to work and have to be licensed on FRAND terms. Design patents do not have to be licensed. If the company owning a design patent doesn't license it, you just have to use something different. It's not needed to make the product work.
