Cooper-Hewitt Asks: Can Designers Save the World?

Today, the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum unwrapped, the National Design Triennial, an omnibus exhibition that occurs only once every three years. And this time, it’s titled “Why Design Now,” and packed with 134 projects that aim to fix the worlds problems. Instead of prettified gewgaws and ironic flights of fancy, there’s everything from carbon-neutral buildings to baby incubators made of scrap parts.

HERE is a preview of the exhibition. (Thanks for the tip Don)

The Haptica Braille watch, by David Chavez. Watches for the blind usually employ loud audio or hard-to-read exposed faces, but this watch presents time in your standard military format.
