Metropolis magazine names CEO John Edelman one of this year’s Game Changers. Edelman’s desire “to show people how to live with modern” and his belief in fresh American talent has landed him on the list with eleven other innovators from a variety of fields. The January 2012 issue hits newsstands next Tuesday, January 24, so be sure to pick up a copy for an engaging read.
Mirko Zardini, Ruth Finkelstein, Mia Birk, Tim Duggan, Peter Bilak, Vishaan Chakrabarti, Katie Salen, Rob Kalin, Michael Maltzan, Laura Kurgan and Sarah Williams are also honored.
Edelman also believes in introducing new work by the current generation of designers. A few examples are John Kostick’s Foldable Stars (one of Edelman’s favorites), Josh Herman’s Volcanic Series, David Weeks’ Lucy the Crocodile, Alma Allen’s Bronze Candleholder and Brad Ascalon’s Menorah.
