This week, October 14th-20th, is National Design Week at Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. I got a little jealous when I read about the events happening this week, but there is one that we can take part in over the internet: the People’s Design Award. Visit their website, http://www.peoplesdesignaward.cooperhewitt.org, to cast your vote before October 16th. Then, on October 18th, the winner will be announced at the National Design Awards gala in New York City. My favorites so far are the floating pool and the lifestraw. You only get one vote though, but can write comments on any of the designs.
