The exhibit Design for the Other 90% showcases affordable objects aimed at the 90% of the world's population who often lack the means to purchase even the most basic goods. Many of the designs on display are meant to empower the poor, and help people recovering from natural disasters. Design for the Other 90% opens May 4th at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. Exhibition curator Cynthia E. Smith joins engineer Martin Fisher of KickStart International, and Ron Rivera of Potters for Peace.
