Hospitality by Design

From checking in to a hotel, to entering a new restaurant, to booking a reservation, the hospitality design industry is always finding creative ways to draw people in. On this month’s episode of The Mic, guests Little Wing Lee, Design Director of ACE Hotel Group and founder of Black Folks in Design, and Catherine Piccoli, Curatorial Director at the Museum of Food and Drink explore how design influences the ways people come together, with our host Debbie Millman. Touching on everything from food and cultural connectors to ease in public space, Lee and Piccoli discuss the power of storytelling, the relationship between interiors and cuisine, and what it means to design meaningful experiences in today’s world.
