Shaped By Nature


On this episode of The Mic, host Debbie Millman interviews interdisciplinary designer Kickie Chudikova and interior designer Sara Bengur in front of a live audience of New York City creatives for this special season opener. From the vibrant colors of Kickie’s childhood kitchen in Slovakia, to Sara’s advice on which direction your bed should face according to the Vastu tradition, join us for a jam-packed episode all about nature’s influence on the design process.

This live recording of The Mic was part of a special celebration of Caesarstone and NYCxDESIGN‘s initiative, the IMPACTxDESIGN competition. Kickie Chudikova’s winning design, Spiral of Life, is an undulating, experimental seating installation manufactured using Caesarstone quartz, now on view in DUMBO’s Pedestrian Plaza.
