Shaped By Nature with Kickie Chudikova and Sara Bengur

Posted inThe Mic

PRINTCast: The PRINT Podcast Studio is a curated collection of cutting-edge podcasts we love about design, creativity, branding, books, and further subjects afield. In The Mic, NYCxDESIGN and Debbie Millman offer an inside look into New York City’s most creative minds.

On this special season opener, host Debbie Millman interviews product designer Kickie Chudikova and interior designer Sara Bengur in front of a live audience of New York City creatives. From the vibrant colors of Kickie’s childhood kitchen in Slovakia, to Sara’s advice on which direction your bed should face according to the Vastu tradition, join us for a jam-packed episode all about nature’s influence on the design process.

This live recording of The Mic was part of a special celebration of Caesarstone and NYCxDESIGN‘s initiative, the IMPACTxDESIGN competition. Kickie Chidikova’s winning design, Spiral of Life, is an undulating, experimental seating installation manufactured using Caesarstone quartz, now on view in DUMBO’s Pedestrian Plaza.
