  • "I feel like I knew so little about IKEA's sustainability efforts prior - I wonder what other companies are leading the charge in this realm that are flying under the radar with their efforts. E.g. I know sustainable furnishings council is full of companies inclined toward innovation, but that maybe aren't all the way 'there' with their progress or are still in development phases. Nice to know when the big brands are catching the wave!!! Great piece, Sarah! "
    on: An Armchair, A Sustainability Audit,and the Circular Future
  • "Just a thought... I wonder how sustainability certifications (in timber or plastics e.g.) could work in tandem with craft-based methodologies somehow to help guide the whole economy of making toward circularity. If all materials were used with these disassemble-able, bio-reusable making methods, that could be really dramatic -- or if there were sort of reciprocal requirements for certification, e.g. where not only is the MATERIAL certified, but the usage also has to be too. I don't know... crossed my mind as I read these beautiful anecdotes from Jonsara! "

  • "As always, your perspectives introduce me to new angles on & considerations for aspects of design I'm actively thinking about. This should be a required article for architects! "

  • "i understand what you're saying, though i do not agree with it. from these comments, it doesn't feel like you understand "racism." it is not applicable here b/c the structure of supremacy/superiority is not existent in the context of what this grant offers. "promoting racism" is moot here. exclusion is one thing, and yes, this is an exclusive offer. it is targeted toward a specific population in order to support them, because they (Black women designers) have not always had the same systems of support to develop careers of the same caliber that white designers have had. it's about capital and community etc. for your reference, the female design council (as well as its upcoming endeavors, akin to this grant) actively promotes womxn- identifying POC on the whole, which includes Asian womxn (including Indian/East/South Asian), Native American, and more. responding to the "plight" of women at large is the whole purpose of the organization... appreciate your acknowledgement of the FDC's positive intentions. as we both know, though, impact is what's actually measurable."
    on: Female Design Council is Offering Up Two $2,500 Grants to Black Womxn Designers
  • "That criticism is misplaced. White male support is the default / the given for our industry (and country, etc.). There is nothing sexist about supporting woman-identified people and nothing racist about supporting POC."

  • "Loved this read. Thinking of adaptive reuse in architecture, how positioning for circularity is accessible across design-build sectors in so many forms... if the intentionality is there! (Also truly rethinking my kitchen wares investments!!) "
    on: Design for Disassembly: This Old Idea is the Wave of the Future
  • "Right - elimination of SKUs.. I did some research on Bob Barker, Inc. Worth googling if you're not familiar with them. Massive market share on these design products. Thanks again for your feedback. (PS - may have accidentally "disliked" your comment, though mean to "like" it!)"
    on: The American Prison Uniform: A Snapshot
  • "Hey Chris, thanks for your comment. That's so curious to me - what brand were you designing packaging for then? Or was it a generic detention supplier? Would love to hear how you ended up there, and what the feedback loop was like on your work, e.g. because of its very unique considerations. "
    on: The American Prison Uniform: A Snapshot
  • "Thanks for the note! I like it too, but don't love the over-saturation of anything (granted, it's just my personal algorithm's homogeneity to blame!!). Also feels good to know a little more about where 'trends' are actually coming from. Glad you were into the conversation! "

  • "Wow!!! Didn't know ANY of this. So interesting. (You go, pioneers of the mate straw!) Thank you John for framing the current/necessary oppression of the plastic straw into a helpful history + call to action for design peoples. "
    on: Straw: The Original Straw
  • "Thank you, John!! "
