by Miyoko Ohtake What's wrong with American furniture design? That's the topic burning an image on the mind of Surface editor-in-chief Dan Rubinstein. "We're one of the wealthiest nations in the world, we make lots of furniture, we have lots of young designers, but there's something wrong and we don't know what it is," he says. On Thursday, January 13, the Rubinstein, working with the Museum of Art and Design in New York, will kick off the museum's newest public program titled The Home Front: American Furniture Now. Structured as five talks spread over four months (plus portfolio reviews and open studios), the series will examine how we as Americans make furniture and what we still need to learn to succeed. We spoke with Rubinstein as he was working to close an upcoming issue and prepare for the magazine's redesign and launch of its new website. Read more below.
