The Conversation series at WantedDesign is a three-day platform and dialogue, supported this year by Ligne Roset and Axor, co-presented by Metropolis Magazine and hosted in the Conversation Room at Grimshaw.

“Smart and talented people talking about what they do, what keeps them up at night, and the role designers can play in changing our world for the better—what could be more interesting than that?” Susan Szenazy, Editor in Chief/Publisher Metropolis Magzine
