If you haven’t heard of the just-released book yet, Design Revolution: 100 Products that Empower People is a compendium of and call-to-action for products that empower individuals, communities, and economies. The book makes the case for design as a tool for social change rather than simply aesthetics (with particular attention paid to the reorientation of the product design industry, a discipline inherently defined by the production of more “stuff”). We look forward to seeing you on the 6th! In the meantime, you can purchase Design Revolution via Amazon for $23 here.
