Today Core77 is excited to launch Afterschool, a design-centric podcast. Hosted by Don Lehman, this podcast is designed for all those times you're sketching, working in the shop, or just looking for inspiration from inspiring people. We'll have conversations with interesting creatives and regular guests. The viewpoint of Afterschool will come from industrial design, but the focus will be on all types of creativity: Graphic design, storytelling, architecture, cooking, illustration, branding, materials, business, research... anything that could enrich your thought process, we'll talk about.
Our first guests are Theo Richardson, Charles Brill and Alexander Williams—the dynamic trio behind Rich Brilliant Willing, a lighting and furniture manufacturer based in Brooklyn. Although they have been on the scene for only a few years, RBW has already carved out a reputation for creating some of the most inventive and inviting work being created right now.
In our conversation we talk about founding RBW, how they have gone about building their line, and how they have grown as both designers and businessmen. Check it out in the iTunes store!
