The Bauhaus philosophy of bridging the gap between art and industry by combining crafts and fine arts, is everywhere—think the curved corners of your iPhone, your favorite circular teapot, or that geometrically shaped home on your block. Now that technology dominates our world, can these principles apply to non-physical space and experiences, too? In this interactive discussion and workshop, see an exclusive sneak peek of award-winning filmmakers’ Petter Ringbom and Alysa Nahmias new documentary that explores the Bauhaus legacy. Then, Smart Design’s Richard Whitehall, Amazon Music’s Marisa Gallagher, Openbox’s Marquise Stillwell, and film directors Ringbom and Nahmias will discuss the past, present, and future applications of Bauhaus design. Then you’ll join breakout sessions that target a major design challenge—all while enjoying Smart Design’s offices inside the famous Starrett-Lehigh Building overlooking the Hudson River.
