There is a nice group exhibition opening tonight at the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. The show is called ‘Design For A Living World‘, a project of the Nature Conservancy, showcasing the work of 10 designers including Stephen Burks, Hella Jongerius, Yves Behar, Ted Muehling and Isaac Mizrahi that explores our connection to the natural world through sustainable materials, products and design.
As an example Stephen Burks spent a week in Australia working with an aboriginal community, the Noongar people, to explore their return and connection to their land. Hella Jongerius went to the maya forest in Mexico and Isaac Mizrahi to southwest Alaska.
