This exhibit opens early and can be viewed beginning on Tuesday, March 21st. 

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:

BISSELL + Octane
Chaco (Wolverine Worldwide)
Driven Solutions
DYMO
Mathison | Mathison Architects
The Neon Connection
Reverend Guitars
Stryker
Studio Wise
Sundberg Ferar
Tekna + BISSELL
Uncle Goose
Woosah Outfitters

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