What is your favorite design book?
Design as Art by Bruno Munari. It is my comfort book, as each time I doubt myself and my role as a designer, I come back to it.
What is your favorite design object?
Antennae with Red and Blue Dots by Alexander Calder, circa 1932. This mobile continually redefines the space around as it moves. Art? Design? To me, it is the perfect combination of both.
