IDEO Selects

IDEO, a leading innovation and design firm for more than 20 years, is the fourth guest curator in the exhibition series presented in the Nancy and Edwin Marks Gallery. IDEO organizes works from the permanent collection around the theme of "design thinking," displaying objects such as an array of flashlights from the 1940s through the 1990s, showing diverse designs for portable lighting; a nineteenth-century textile panel with instructions for making hand shadow figures; a cane with pull-out map; the 1940s “Silver Streak” glass iron; the "Divusumma 18" calculator, designed by Mario Bellini; and a child's chair, designed by Charles and Ray Eames.
