The new season of OFF BOOK premiered on March 7th, 2012, and is available here.
Off Book: Product Design
We swim in an ocean of products. Behind each one, there is someone (hopefully) thinking about the way we experience it. In this episode of Off Book, we explore three aspects of product design: build quality and engineering fundamentals, humanism and sustainability, and speculation on the future of the product experience. In discussion with the 4th generation owner of a classic brand, a brilliant designer of socially progressive products, and an MIT researcher looking to revolutionize the product experience through 3D printing, we'll capture a sense of the values and challenges in the contemporary world of product design.
Featuring: Dr. Harvey Moscot, Moscot Eyewear; Yves Behar, Fuseproject; and Peter Schmitt, MIT Personal Robotics Group
