Jony Ive to speak on future of design at Smithsonian in Washington D.C. on Nov. 29

Posted:
in General Discussion
Apple Chief Design Officer Jony Ive will be making an appearance in Washington D.C. and is helming a talk titled "The Future of Design" with Steve Jobs biography author Rick Tetzeli.




The Smithsonian reports that ticket reservations for the event are all claimed. However, there is an online waitlist for people who want to attend -- and the possibility of getting a seat the day of on a first-come first-served basis.

AppleInsider got the notification at 3 a.m. on Wednesday morning. By 7 a.m., the ticket reservations were already depleted.

"Jonathan Ive, Chief Design Officer of Apple, is widely considered the world's most influential industrial designer and plays a key role in Apple's status as one of the most recognized and innovative brands in history," writes the Smithsonian, publicizing the talk. "As CDO, he is behind all aspects of the look and feel of the iPhone, iPad, MacBook, and Apple watch-- as well as major architectural projects like Apple Park-- and new ideas and initiatives in development."

The event will be held in the Ring Auditorium in the Smithsonian. It is being organized by the Hirshhorn Museum, and is presented in partnership with the Smithsonian Magazine.

Ive also recently spoke in New York City. At that event, he discussed the joy of joining Apple, the iPhone X design versus available technology, and how Steve Jobs taught him how to say no.

Rick Tetzeli is the editor-at-large at Fast Company. He also authored the 2015 biography "Becoming Steve Jobs: The Evolution of a Reckless Upstart into a Visionary Leader."

    Jony sure seems to have a hell of a lot of free time to attend all of these events and get in front of the media. Is he actually doing any designing anymore?

    A soup can at a museum is art.  A soup can at the grocery is a can of soup. This is part of his design job.

    If it will make you feel any better, Smithsonian employees (outside of Hirshhorn anyway) found out when you did.

    Whenever Jony Ive’s name is mentioned the snark flows like water here. I guess it’s true about tech types, that you don’t give a crap how something looks, just the specs. I’ve seen  up close some of those big gamer machines that look like they came from a Lego movie, or maybe Dr. Evil's lair. Black plastic, flashing lights, LEDs all over the things, sharks with laser beams on their heads. So that’s what’s preferred over Ive’s design tastes?

    Ive is generally acknowledged as the premier industrial designer of our era and Apple is lucky to have him. Steve chose well.

    Another chance for Jony to defend the notch.

    Last I knew...Jony Ive wasn't the only designer at Apple? Why does he need to be there 24/7? Thats like saving because Tim Cook is in Europe, nobody is running Apple until he gets back.

    Steve didn't "choose" him, he challenged him. He first told him that his designs sucked and that he could do a better job designing.  It was that tough love that Jony needed to hear that pushed him to do better. 

    Steve was lucky that Jony responded like he did. Who knows what Apple would've looked like without him.

    I doubt Johny Ive has the technical knowhow to solve for that challenge, he's the product designer limited by technology. If he could have it his way, the iPhone will be nothing but a sheet of glass.

    Wasn't Jony at Apple before Steve came back?

    Yep, he designed the 20th anniversary Mac and got an earful when Steve saw it. That was the beginning of their relationship. He mentions what Steve said about it if you look it up.

    Apple should stop hiding its software flaws in the name of good design. The good designs are of no use to us consumers if the general experience with the Software is bad. It is so sad to see so many software being released with bugs and being patched later on.  Miss the days when the Apple product really worked.

    All of my Apple products "really work"...nothing has really changed. Sorry about your experience.

    Very well said.

    It's a difficult line for Ive to walk, I'm sure, as I'm sure at least part of his message will likely include encouraging people to appreciate the aesthetic quality and intrinsic design of a thing in an objective sense, not beholden to the subjective judgement of the members of the 'Art' world. This is a message that will cause a lot of cognitive dissonance, and resistance, in those from the 'Art' world that have build their careers on the subjective nature of how art is seen today. Of course, the modern idea of what Art is has been framed in a subjective, fickle manner that changes relative to the popularity of those involved, to the point where the credibility of most 'Art' these days, whether deservedly or not, is built on a house-of-cards based on an Emperor's-New-Clothes-like echo-chamber of subjective opinions. Of course, the development of how 'Art' is perceived has matched closely with modern society's political and ideological ethos, particularly the fixation on sujbjectivism and relativism, which is informing today's Kunstwollen.

    It would be so nice if some people would just stop living in this magical past that was Apple where they never did anything wrong and everything was perfect.

    I'm sure that Tim Cook is now relieved that the Appleinsider peanut gallery is picking on Jony Ive instead of him.

    I like that picture very much with these 5 folks that made history together. Only 3 are left with Apple. I think that it was a very special group of people.
