The Maker Movement
"Even though I’m a firm advocate for affordable design, I celebrate that there’s increasingly a market for talented makers to experiment with challenging techniques and higher-end materials. I interpret the financial success of independent makers like BDDW, Eskayel, Calico, and Amuneal as an indication that our society really does value quality and artistic expression."

"While their price points aren’t accessible to everyone — and I’m 100% including myself in this bucket — I’m a believer that their innovations do trickle down to benefit us."
