by Olivia Martin In 1979, Nasir Kassamali, co-founder of furniture showroom Luminaire, started a talk series with designers as a way to eliminate the barriers between designers, their furniture, and the consumers. Over thirty years later, he is still working on generating conversation with newly debuted Design Lives, a series of talks with manufacturers to get “the story behind the story.” The first talk, held on November 8 with Benjamin A. Pardo, the current executive vice president and design director of Knoll, and Jeffrey Osborne, the creative director of Knoll from 1976-1986.
