Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents New Old: Designing for our Future Selves, an exhibition exploring cutting-edge design solutions for our rapidly aging society. The design concepts are centered around six themes: Identity, Community, Mobility, Home, Aging and Working. From robotic clothing to driverless cars, New Old rethinks design approaches that will help people lead fuller, healthier and more rewarding lives into old age.
With work by Yves Béhar / fuseproject, Konstantin Grcic, Future Facility, Special Projects, IDEO, and PriestmanGoode, this installment is updated with work by five faculty members from the School of Design, including Mitchell Reece Johnson (Graduate Communications/Package Design), Andrea
Katz (Fashion); Karol Murlak (Industrial Design); Alex Schweder (Industrial and Interior Design) and Keena Suh (Interior Design).
Curated by Jeremy Myerson, Professor at the Royal College of Art, this is a touring exhibition from the Design Museum, London, in partnership with the Helen Hamlyn Trust.
