The National Geographic Museum will open a new exhibition this Wednesday, April 28 called Design for the Other 90%, a touring exhibition from the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. The exhibition takes a look at designers who are developing solutions that address basic needs for the vast majority of the world’s population not traditionally served by professional designers. Of the world’s 6.5 billion people, 90% have few to none of the basic necessities required for progress and survival. Design for the Other 90% presents more than 30 innovative products and solutions to these obstacles. It will be open through September 6, 2010.
