Exhibition Challenges Designers To Create Products That Address Discrimination
Group of designers channelled personal experiences to create products that change behavior
Design week events globally don’t often include work that tackles a major social issue. But there are occasions where we do get to see designers look beyond creating another chair or LED light. Offering a substantive look at how designers solve for difficult problems is the annual show from Group Hug during NYCxDesign. Founders Krystal Persaud and Lori Bailey use little restraint in selecting a yearly topic to challenge invited designers to creatively solve. This year’s theme, “Judge Me” was particularly relevant to current events.
