Invision's Objects Made Exhibit and Presentation February 11, 2014


Event Unveils Inspiring and Unexpected Insights on Trends Shaping Product Design

DALTON, Ga. (Jan. 23, 2014) — Objects Made, a one-hour presentation and exhibit that unveils the inspirational and unexpected trends shaping product design today, is coming to Atlanta on Feb. 11, 2014.  Commissioned by Invision, the presentation reveals the research conducted by noted designer Sarah Miller who spent more than a year meeting with 21 craftspeople from various industries to discover how object makers approach the design process. The presentation is IDCEC accredited for 0.1 CEU. 

The event, being hosted at the Museum of Design Atlanta (1315 Peachtree Street, Atlanta, GA 30309) is free and open to professional architects and designers, but space is limited.  The registration, reception and exhibition, featuring all 21 objects from Miller’s research, will open at 5:30 p.m.  Miller’s presentation will begin at 6:15 p.m., followed by a Q&A session. The exhibit will open again from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Attendees will have the chance to network before and after Miller’s presentation during the exhibition’s open times. 

Miller’s presentation provides the context, rationale and methodology of her research and the results she uncovered.  Those results include 10 Design Themes and four color and materials palette trends.  A profile of each object maker, many of whom are entrepreneurs creating products ranging from decorative lamps to environmentally friendly stacking chairs, is also provided.
