Abstract:

Rob Forbes, a potter with a background in retail, saw a market for clean, modern design made available to everyday people, and turned this idea into the brilliant nationwide chain and catalog Design Within Reach. Along with new and classic home goods, DWR became a platform for Forbes' way of seeing. Early catalogs were packed with colorful images from his travels, news about designers he loved, and fun contests for fans to participate inches In July 2007, Forbes left DWR to focus on a new project, PUBLIC, which designs and sells urban bikes. In this interesting TEDTalk, Forbes shows a gallery of snapshots that shape the way he sees the world. With charming juxtapositions, found art, and urban patterns, his slideshow enlightens viewers about the world around them.
