Unfortunately Rob Forbes Lecture that was scheduled for March 9 has been cancelled.

Rob Forbes has been a ceramic artist, professor, author, publisher, photographer, and business entrepreneur. He has held executive positions at numerous retail companies, but is best known as the founder of Design Within Reach (1998) and PUBLIC Bikes (2009).

Design Within Reach pioneered many changes that have become mainstream today: Internet retailing of modern design, design blogging, transparent pricing, and a focus on designers themselves. PUBLIC bikes has a similar business model with a mission to bring design awareness to our public urban spaces and to our civic lives.

Rob Forbes has received numerous awards and public recognition for his advocacy of art, design, and urbanism and serves on several boards in the nonprofit sector. He recently authored See for Yourself published by Chronicle Books, a visual study and search for beauty in our everyday world.
