Made Away ICFF Talk, New York May 2017

In these uncertain and charged times it is important to reflect on the role that design can play in driving public discourse and fostering a more enlightened understanding of cultural differences. Nelda Rodger of Azure Magazine in conversation with Enrico Bressan (Artecnica), Patty Johnson (Patty Johnson Design), Eero Koivisto (CKR), Marc Thorpe (Marc Thorpe Design), and Peter Mabeo (Mabeo Furniture) will talk about their experiences when their products are made away in other cultures with small manufacturers and community initiatives. By using local materials, processes and know-how, the results highlight the beautiful realties of difference when designers work globally.
