In preparation for Dwell on Design, we look forward to Michael Graves and the inspiration he will provide as our keynote speaker in June. Michael Graves is credited with broadening the role of the architect in society and raising public interest in good design as essential to the quality of everyday life. He has displayed his talents not only as an architect for the 20th century and beyond, but as a product designer and innovator for such well-known companies as Target, Alessi and now JCPenney. Through these rich experiences and his incredible travel history, the designer has gleaned invaluable insights into design and living. Here are just a few inspiring quotes from our latest interview.
