We just got word that The Nature Conservancy will kick off their Design for a Living World traveling exhibition at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York City on May 14th. Ten of the world’s leading industrial, fashion and furniture designers will showcase their beautifully-crafted objects made from sustainably grown and responsibly harvested materials “in order to tell a unique story about the life-cycle of materials and the power of conservation and design.” Some of today’s hottest names in design will be participating including: award-winning industrial designer Yves Behar, environmentally-conscious jewelry designer Ted Muehling, Hella Jongerius and more. In addition, a prototype of the winning design from DESIGN 21’s “Going With the Grain” Challenge (a contest to design an object from a single sheet of FSC-certified wood) will be auctioned off in conjunction with the tour.
