"Peter Muller-Munk and Me: Parallel Lives"

Presented in conjunction with "Silver to Steel: The Modern Designs of Peter Muller-Munk" as part of the Industrial Designers Society of America, Central Conference.

Peter Muller-Munk strived for excellence in the field of industrial design. He identified sharing ideas amongst designers and the education of design students as some of the key components to building a thriving national and international design community.
To further his commitment, he became president of the Society of Industrial Designers in 1954. Now known as IDSA, this organization continues to educate, support, and stimulate.

Hear from two important figures working in ID today. Jeevak Badve, National Board of IDSA and VP at Sundberg-Ferar, 2nd oldest ID firm working today, will discuss the fundamentals of ID today. Then join Tucker Viemeister for a look back at his parallel design path with Muller-Munk and the design era of his father, who once considered merging practices with PMMA and was one of the designers on the Tucker automobile, and a look forward beyond silver and steel into our post-industrial future where those same lessons of collaboration, innovation, and be auty are pointing the way toward progress. Exhibition curator, Rachel Delphia, will introduce the program.
