Design for the other 90% was an exhibition held at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York and explored the design innovations targetting the 90% of the world’s population who do not have access to most of the products and services we take for granted.
The curator of the exhibition is in Australia and is giving a free lecture at COFA next week, May 7.
In this lecture she will discuss the efforts of passionate, like-minded designers, engineers, students, professors, architects, and social entrepreneurs from all over the globe who are turning their attention to the disenfranchised majority; the 90% of the world’s population who don’t even have regular access to food, clean water, or shelter, let alone the sleek and seductive designer luxury items we take for granted.
When: Wednesday May 7, 6:30pm
Where: COFA Lecture Theatre EG02
