The Next Wave:

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN INNOVATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY

What makes an object useful, engaging and beautiful? What is it about a distinct design that conveys calm, wonder and excitement in the user and helps us recall a moment in time? Artisphere and Apartment Zero have teamed up to present the Washington, DC International Design Festival, a free three-month long multi-disciplinary celebration of design, featuring the exhibition The Next Wave: Industrial Design Innovation in the 21st Century, curated and produced by Apartment Zero co-owner Douglas Burton.
