Soon, we’ll have a dedicated digital listening room. In the meantime, we present Design Museum’s Design is Everywhere, hosted by Sam Aquillano and Liz Pawlak—a “podcast featuring stories of people and organizations using design to make an impact and change the world.”

The latest episode (No. 40): “Sourcing Sustainable Materials: LIVE at the Workplace Innovation Summit.”

Here’s more from the Design is Everywhere team:

What is the importance of sustainable design materials in the workplace?

During Design Museum Everywhere’s Workplace Innovation Summit in December, Sam chatted with Nicole Schmidt, the CEO at Source, the world’s largest commercial construction product database. Here, Nicole discusses how she uses her design background to lead her efforts at Source and the value of material transparency. Together, they dive into the benefits of healthy sustainable materials on productivity and wellness. Later on in the show, they are joined by Carissa Mylin, a senior interior designer at SERA Architects, who shares the resources and tools designers can use to make healthier design decisions for the office and home.
