This year’s Dwell on Design keynote speaker will be none other than Stephen Burks, one of America’s pre-eminent industrial designers. Burks has developed products for brands like B&B Italia, Estée Lauder, and Missoni through his New York-based industrial design studio, Readymade Projects. For his Dala furniture collaboration with Dedon, Burks works closely with weavers in the Philippines, an effort that maximizes the artisans’ expression and represents a sustainable investment in technique.
