Dwell on Design Conference

Dwell on Design

If you want to stretch your design vocabulary, you might consider attending the Dwell on Design conference at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Put on by the San Francisco-based Dwell magazine folks, the seminar descriptions include sentences like this:

“Not all designers set out to achieve the Platonic ideal in a concept for a chair, but few would argue that the promise of synonymy with a beloved design object does not motivate their process.”

Go ahead. Look up “Platonic ideal” and “synonymy.” I did, and I learned a lot.
