Description

How do products, devices, and environments affect our wellbeing? What is the human side of visiting a hospital—or working in one? What do museums and health care facilities have in common? Ellen Lupton is curator of contemporary design at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, where her exhibitions and books have explored topics such as feminism, beauty, universal design, and multisensory experience. Human centered design is a collaborative endeavor among end-users, clinicians, artists, designers, and researchers, working together to create a more humane world. Lupton’s exhibitions include Mechanical Brides: Women and Machines from Home to Office, Skin: Surface, Substance + Design, Beautiful Users, and The Senses: Design Beyond Vision. Her latest projects include Health Design Thinking, co-authored with Dr. Bon Ku and published by Cooper Hewitt and MIT Press.
