Louise Harpman and Scott Specht: Coffee Lids

Thursday, March 29, 2018 - 11:00am

You may see them every day, but have you ever thought about their design? If you drink coffee and hot tea from a store, then you have seen coffee lids. These everyday objects have an entire design taxonomy and evolution. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with LOUISE HARPMAN, architect, educator, irrational optimist and SCOTT SPECHT, architect, developer and researcher. They have produced a surprisingly fascinating and beautiful book about COFFEE LIDS: (1) PEEL, (2) PINCH, (3) PUCKER, (4) PUNCTURE. It’s all about controlling spillage. Tune in and find out why.
