Speaking to our youth on design.


Participating in the Arthur and Teddy Edelman Speaker Series, our CEO John Edelman spoke alongside architect and designer David Rockwell at Promise Academy 1, founded by Harlem Children’s Zone to educate and empower local youth. Launched in 2013 by husband-and-wife design duo Sam and Libby Edelman, this series was conceived to inspire children and feed their passions – especially for art and design – while also giving them a strong practical understanding of what it takes to succeed in today’s world and realize their dreams. Roughly 100 students attended the session with Arthur and Teddy, John and Sam’s parents.
