ISO has found another source for design enlightenment. The mission of Denver-based Design Onscreen—the Initiativefor Architecture and Design on Film—is to document and disseminate the work of significant designers and contemporaryissues in design. Here's one of the many videos from Design Onscreen.

Hella Jongerius: Contemporary Archetypes is a documentary exploring the design approach of the world-renowned Dutch designer. Jongerius, who is regarded as one of the most innovative and creative designers working today, explores new visions for design, craft, art and technology in her products for everyday life. She creates unique pieces using industrial processes and archetypal forms, explaining: "Why should I design anything new if certain forms have long proved their usefulness? An archetypal vase is, to me, round-bellied and has a narrow neck."
