The Transformative Power of Design

Last week in Miami, Whitewall continued its partnership with Lexus for the “Lexus Art Series: Art and Innovation Talks with Whitewall.” Now in its fourth edition, the series was held over two days, hosted at Design Miami/.

The series of talks continued on Wednesday morning, starting with “The Transformative Power of Design,” with Chief Designer of the Lexus LC Convertible Tadao Mori, President of CALTY Design Research Kevin Hunter, designer of the “SUNSHOWER” Lexus Installation Nao Tamura, and Director and Partner of Friedman Benda Jennifer Olshin. Moderated by Whitewall’s Editor-in-Chief Katy Donoghue, the group shared their thoughts on how design can impact our perception of an object, space or place. Considering the role of beauty in design, Moir-san, Tamura, Hunter, and Olshin discussed public experience, inclusion, and engagement with nature.
