What can we learn about accessibility in the home? Could customized solutions be mass produced and still fit anyone's unique needs? This unique event is inspired by people with disabilities - the real experts who have learned to cope with day-to-day challenges in their lives.
UNYQ has teamed up with IKEA, Open Style Lab and Two Blind Brothers to collaborate on a series of good looking and functional solutions for the home and everyday life. Meet the UNYQ Collective and the professionals from the fields of furniture design, MedTech, wearables and clothing in an intimate talk in Chelsea Market. Experience an exhibition of customizable solutions developed from the single insight: one size does not fit all.
The event will feature Eythor Bender, CEO, UNYQ; Catarina Löwenadler, Vice President of IKEA; Marcus Engman, Head of Design, IKEA; Brad & Bryan Manning, co-founders of Two Blind Brothers; Grace Jun, Executive Director, Open Style Lab; Quemuel Arroyo, Policy Analyst for Accessibility and ADA Coordinator for the New York City Department of Transportation; and Christina Annika Mallon, digital marketer and inclusive designer at Open Style Lab at Parsons.
Meet the Experts will be open to the public October 12-14 at the Chelsea Market, New York.
