Making Connections: Harvey Probber Furniture Exhibition at NYSID
In the middle decades of the twentieth century, Harvey Probber's name was as widely recognized as those of designers like Charles Eames and George Nelson, yet it is scarcely as familiar today. This may be in part because he was even better known as a prominent manufacturer, but there are other reasons: his furniture was made in relatively limited quantities, he was self-taught as a designer, and he was considerably younger than his contemporaries and competitors.

Simplicity as a Design Principle Exhibition at Red Dot Design Museum
'Simplicity as a design principle,' a new exhibition at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, will use historical as well as present-day design objects to highlight the fact that there are many facets to simplicity, with economic, functional and emotional components running alongside aesthetics. This is because simplicity in design means not only a minimalist appearance, but in many cases also a de facto simplification of the products that reduce their complexity and improves the user experience as a result. In this way, the exhibition demonstrates what Leonardo da Vinci meant when he said: "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."
