Design isn’t just streamlined furniture, shiny gadgets, and sleek cars. It also has the capacity to do good—to have a deep and profound impact on peoples’ lives. From cleaner portable stoves in Africa to low-cost housing in rural America, impact design aims to tackle and solve social, environmental, and economic challenges. Whether on a small scale or a grand stage, designers are finding new and innovative ways to make a difference.
