Ever gaze at an object and wonder why the designer chose that material? Or why that shape? Aiming to demystify design is Product Placement, a bimonthly series founded in 2008 by journalist Julie Taraska and publicist Kimberly Oliver. Each installment features a range of designers presenting the inspirations and creative process behind one of their pieces, followed by an audience discussion. This installment, curated for MAD, explores design for kids with DwellStudio founder and creative director Christiane Lemieux, Rockwell Group principal and studio leader Barry Richards, and lighting and furniture designer David Weeks, among others.
