One outing that will definitely be on my agenda the next time I’m in New York City is to visit the third Triennial exhibition at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. On view now through July 29, 2007 Design Life Now demonstrates how design permeates every aspect of contemporary life and showcases the best in experimental design and emerging ideas at the center of American culture from 2003 to 2006.

In addition to the exhibition, the Cooper-Hewitt is sponsoring a number of related lectures and seminars, as well as podcasts and an online forum for conversation and commentary moderated by the curators.
