The sixth installment in the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum’s Nancy and Edwin Marks Gallery features more than 30 objects organized under the rubric of “design thinking”—a timeless, inherently human approach to problem-solving focused on improving what already exists and creating what does not.

Exhibition objects range from the 16th century to the present, and despite their diversity (of intent, media and context), reveal a shared story about the ways in which designers are called upon to solve everyday problems. Site visitors can think like designers by looking at objects in Cooper-Hewitt's permanent collection through lenses of empathy, intuition and inspiration and are encouraged to begin looking at the world around them to see design thinking “at work.”

• Six-month development time.

• The interactive component to an IDEO-curated exhibition at the museum.

• Site visitors can comment on the objects in the exhibition and upload images of examples of design thinking from their lives.
