David Irwin on Protecting Design [Podcast] In the podcast series “Design Confab” I meet industrial designer David Irwin and discuss how we can protect designs for the future. David Irwin is driven by a desire to assign purpose to both traditional and contemporary manufacturing processes. Focused on material exploration, David Irwin works for leading manufacturers and design-led companies such as Habitat, Deadgood and Juniper within the realm of contemporary furniture, product and lighting design. His designs combine strong conceptual thinking with a fundamental usefulness, resulting in simple, innovative and refined solutions to aid our daily lives. Listen as David and I have a conversation about how products can take on a life of their own once they are launched into the public domain… Transcript coming soon. Daniel Having worked in design for the past decade, Daniel started ateliertally.com as a discussion of timeless, modernist product design. Trained as a graphic designer, he also has an avid interest in typography. You can follow him on Twitter @ateliertally.
