How can design solve real world problems? Our new exhibition, Design for Social Impact, shows how the design process is being used to tackle some of the 21st century’s most difficult problems.
Based on the idea that design is a way of looking at the world with an eye for changing it, Design for Social Impact looks at how designers, engineers, students, professors, architects, and social entrepreneurs are using design to solve problems in the areas of shelter, community, education, healthcare, energy, and food & water.
Join us for the opening reception for our upcoming exhibition, Hidden Heroes: The Genius of Everyday Things, on the evening of Saturday, February 22, from 7pm to 9pm. We’ll admire the design and engineering ingenuity that brought about a host of everyday objects that make our lives easier, while we enjoy a glass of wine and light snacks.
Hidden Heroes. The Genius of Everyday Things highlights the stories behind the design of 36 ordinary objects that have revolutionized the way we live, such as paper clips, bubble wrap, and pencils.
Organized by The Vitra Museum in Germany and by Hi-Cone, the products showcased in this traveling exhibition illuminate four aspects of their design: innovation, production, evolution and inspiration.
