What’s Past is Prologue: A New Spin on an Old Trope
Tuesday, December 12
2PM
Description
Our panel of young design experts are heavily steeped in the history of the decorative arts. But rather than slavishly adhering to historical precedents, they’re building upon that tradition to forge exciting new paths in the world of contemporary design, all the while maintaining a dialogue with the antique. Their engaging narratives are an insight into the “now” and the future of design.
