NYC Design Week.


The annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) has begun in NYC. During my stroll through the Javits Convention Center yesterday, one of the booths that really stood out was the Herman Miller space. In addition to showing their product – like the Eames® Molded Plastic Chairs in all the new colors – Herman Miller is asking people to participate in the booth experience. 

One of the walls is covered with cloud-shaped white boards where participants can write their responses to the question, “How would you make a better world?” People had written some powerful ideas, while other people (perhaps kids) were just having fun with the dry erase markers and writing things like, “you guys are so imichure” (yes, it was spelled that way). If you’re not planning to attend ICFF, you can tweet your response to “How would you make a better world?” at
