Tom Dixon [1], design pioneer and all around renaissance man, was one of the big hits of HauteGREEN’s festivities [2], where he spoke about issues, concerns and contradictions in sustainable design, including materials, production, recycling and economics. Thanks to the video producers of Scribemedia, we have a great video of his conversation with design journalist Julie Taraska, in which he discusses his own work, sustainability, and his brilliant Second Cycle initiative for Artek [3].

This video is just a quick snapshot of his thought-provoking talk. For those of you who are interested, watch the entire, unabridged version here at Scribemedia > [4]
