Fancy drinking dirty water out of a super straw? Or winding up your laptop to look at your email? These are some inspiring transdisciplinary projects that are taking place in the design word right now.
Last night I went to a presentation by Cynthia E. Smith, curator of the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum of New York. Her exhibition, design for the other 90%, showcases the work of designers, architects, industrial engineers and other creatives who are working to alleviate poverty and suffering in developing nations around the world.
