Design as art: Paola Antonelli on

Paola Antonelli, design curator at New York’s MOMA, wants to spread an appreciation of design, in all shapes and forms — and to remove any stigma of it being considered mere decoration. She leads a quick tour of some design exhibitions she has organized, including “Mutant Materials,” “Workspheres” and “Safe.” (Recorded March 2007 in Monterey, California. Duration: 18:11.)
