To some, it can seem that design happens like Oz pulling levers behind the curtain. Look Behind Design, a specially curated exhibit, dispels some of the mystery with a behind-the-curtain view of how design happens at a group of Michigan-based companies including:

Brothers Leather Supply Company
Chervon
Conduit
Joseph Jeup
Mathison | Mathison Architects
Newell Rubbermaid
Tekna
Woosah Outfitters
Visualhero

The objects they’ve created take on new meaning with the design process behind them on full display.
