Designing Time: Solstice Saturday

Jun.25.2018

On June 23, we celebrated the summer solstice with a conversation on Designing Time, through the lens of Past, Present and Future. We learned about how design has played a very important role in how we engage with time and how it continues to shape our current and future experiences.

 

“Good design should omit the unimportant in order to emphasize the important.”
Emily Orr, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Design at Cooper Hewitt, quoting the influential Dieter Rams, during her enlightening overview of how designers have interacted with and continue to explore concepts of time.

 

“A lot of the work for us in technology is to figure out what not to work on…How do we actually create calm technology, so that the information comes to you? How can we give you back time?”
Albert Shum, CVP of Design at Microsoft, on how he hopes user interaction can be changed or nudged by time.

 

 

Presenters: 

Emily Orr, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Design at Cooper Hewitt; 

Brittany Cox, Antiquarian Horologist at Memoria Technica; 

Lana Sutherland, CEO at Tealeaves;

Albert Shum, CVP of Design at Microsoft.
