Design for the Real World: Jay Harman

Feature

Saturday, July 23, 2005

When designer Jay Harman comes home from a sailing expedition, he’s got a head full of inventions which he spins into new products — beautiful, efficient designs that mimic nature. He grew up in Australia and spent hours in the ocean watching the way fish move. He envied that ease and decided to copy those natural movements in his inventions. Produced by Mary Stucky, in collaboration with the Utne Reader.
