Public radio show Studio 360 is now featuring a bi-weekly podcast called Design for the Real World, where the "hidden genius of everyday things" is discussed. This week's subject is a classic kitchen favorite, the Kitchenaid mixer. Find it at Studio 360 and iTunes.
"From the very start, we've considered design a crucial, thrilling part of "Studio 360's" purview, which is why our longest-running regular feature is Design for the Real World. We've enlisted dozens of graphic designers, industrial designers, architects, artists and design critics to explain why they're fascinated -- in many cases obsessed -- by some particular everyday object, from baseball caps to Post-Its to vacuum cleaners to the industrial wasteland of northern New Jersey to a certain Rolling Stones album cover to the redesigned $5 bill. And now we've turned all of those illuminating, inspiring manifestoes into nifty 2-3-minute-long podcasts. I hope you enjoy them."
