Panel: "One-of-a-Kind Design"
When we think of "design" we often think of mass production. A designer makes a plan for clothing, furnishing, appliances that becomes replicated in large quantities in factories. Four of the designers in Made for You discuss a different approach to design: design as dialogue with the user, design as an opportunity to respond to materials, design as a personal statement.
With Andrew Molleur, Michael Puryear, Jill Reynolds, and Jessica Wickham. Moderated by exhibition curator Jennifer Scanlan
