Business week has a special section on Cutting Edge Designers; about the innovation, discovery and process of design. In particular, Pushing the Boundaries of Design and their accompanying slide-show, Thinking Outside the Design Box, are worth perusing for the design inclined.
Business Week’s coverage points out the importance of design and innovation as a foundation for business strategy and opportunity. This has never been more true than it is today. A great example is the RD4 chair (pictured above), a chair made completely out of melted plastic bottles. It satisfies a growing market in a number of different and exciting ways.
