Design Night, open to the general public, is an events program at the Autodesk Gallery. At each event, guests explore a different theme — such as biomimicry, light, or robotics — that challenges the conventionally narrow definition of design. The theme is reflected in all aspects of the event, from the activities guests enjoy to the food they eat to the music they hear. The result is a fun and fascinating venue for exploration, networking, and the exchange of ideas.
On Thursday, March 6, 6-10 p.m., the Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco will host another Design Night: Can you ID good ID?, where we will explore the design's impact on Industrial Design (ID). So get yourself over to Design Night and experience:

This Design Night spotlights movies that blow our minds. Soaring skyscrapers, bold bridges, and captivating cars; these are just a few things the word "design" brings to mind. But what about the design of everyday things like teapots, potato peelers, and garden tools? This is the realm of industrial design, and from the time you wake up to the time you fall asleep (and while you're unconscious too!) design is helping us do the things we take for granted. So get all sparkly with your designed personal hygiene tools, put on your designed clothes, and take your preferred mode of designed transportation over to Design Night.
So come to Design Night if you're curious about industrial design and what it means to be influenced by the future of design.
