Design Meets Disability

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

If eyeglasses have been transformed from medical necessity to fashion accessory, why shouldn't design sensibilities be applied equally to hearing aids, prosthetic limbs, braille signs and communication aids?

In his new book, Design Meets Disability, Graham Pullin of the Interactive Media Design department at the University of Dundee challenges the distinction made between designing for disabled people - where designers are often not even involved - and designing for everyone else.

In discussion with Andy Stevens from Graphic Thought Facility, the author explores ways in which issues around disability can provoke radical new directions in mainstream design, using examples from Charles and Ray Eames to Cutler & Gross.
