Design? You know: Interior, exterior. The place, perhaps even abstractly, where the utilitarian and/or promotional is infused with beauty, with whatever it takes to please or thrill the eye and mind. Functional art, in other words: More often redolent of technical skill than what's created when some schmuck with too much free time spews their feelings onto a canvas or whatever. Design, you savvy? The sort of visual and physical arrangements that Philippe Starck and Paula Scher and Zaha Hadid and Norman Bel Geddes and Jennymarie Jemison and Karim Rashid, say, have brought the world? Yes, and here's an entire week full of opportunities to explore the best of design in the ATX. [Note: The explorations include Pentagram, so you know it's legit.] See website for details.
