Be Original Americas to host a dynamic panel at WantedDesign on Saturday 16 May 2015 at 2:30p, about authentic design online. The event is titled Authentic Design Online – Be Original Americas. With more and more consumers shopping from a device rather than a brick-and-mortar location, the panel will share their thoughts on how can the design community assert and promote quality through intangible channels? How can the notion of “good design” transcend the static interface of a computer screen or smart phone?
Join Dwell editor in chief and panel moderator Amanda Dameron in conversation with Bezar founder Bradford Shellhammer, Emeco chairman Gregg Buchbinder, and author and design commentator Max Fraser about the ever-shifting online marketplace.
Be Original Americas, founded in 2012, is committed to educating, informing and influencing designers, businesses, and the greater public on the value of purchasing authentic designs. The goal is to elevate the discussion so that all who appreciate good design also understand the economic, social, and ethical reasons to support the creators and manufacturers of original, authorized design, thereby ensuring its future.
