Emily: What role and/or responsibility do you think you and other designers have in terms of sustainability and contributing to green ventures?

AW: While we feel a sense of responsibility, we aren’t motivated by a grudging sense of duty or ideology, but rather by a general sense of wonder in the world. We try to instill that sense of amazement through our projects—the idea that sustainable design could mean a moonlit walk in the park.

    Thanks for posting this.

    more importantly, is there a working contact for them? I’d love a folding pattern for the kayak, but they don’t seem to have a mail server ….
