AUGUST 14: BYRON & DEXTER PEART, interviewed by Stephen Burks.
Montreal natives and twin brothers BYRON & DEXTER PEART are the founders of GOODEE, an e-commerce direct-to-consumer platform that brings together the values of good design and good purpose across the home, beauty, accessory, and design stories told on the site and embodied in the brands featured. Our conversation will span the broad range of their creative output from fashion accessories to resort hotel design to the success of the GOODEE platform to developing products with the UN Ethical Fashion Initiative for their own GOODEE brand.

AUGUST 19: DAN BARBER AND GREGG MOORE, interviewed by Glenn Adamson
Dan Barber, one of America’s pre-eminent voices on food, locality, and sustainability, will talk with ceramist Gregg Moore about their collaboration ‘Chef & Potter.’ This collaboration for Barber’s renowned restaurant Blue Hill at Stone Barns draws on the materiality of the farm landscape, to provide a deeply thoughtful and aesthetically resolved dining experience. Our conversation with them will explore the fundamental importance of design even where it might seem to play only a subsidiary role, further expanding the dialogue. RSVP here.
