Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents "New Old: Designing for Our Future Selves," an exhibition exploring cutting-edge design solutions for our rapidly aging society. The design concepts are centered around six themes: Aging, Identity, Home, Community, Working, and Mobility. From robotic clothing to driverless cars, "New Old" rethinks design approaches that will help people lead fuller, healthier, and more rewarding lives into old age. "New Old" features design commissions by Yves Béhar / Fuseproject and Superflex, Konstantin Grcic, Future Facility, Special Projects, IDEO, and PriestmanGoode. This installment is updated with work by five faculty members from Pratt's School of Design, including Andrea Katz, Karol Murlak, Mitchell Reece, Alex Schweder, and Keena Suh, along with additional US-based projects. Curated by Jeremy Myerson, Helen Hamlyn Professor of Design at the Royal College of Art, this is a touring exhibition from the Design Museum, London, in partnership with the Helen Hamlyn Trust.
