The POD Sessions

The POD Sessions

De Vorm, a Dutch furniture company, asked me to produce and conduct video interviews with famous designers, architects and chefs during the What Design Can Do! 2015 conference in Amsterdam. The POD Sessions, named after their famous POD chair, is a series of inspiring discussions with the biggest names in design, art, architecture and culture. I asked them about their thoughts on workplace, creativity and innovation.

I did interviews with Stefan Sagmeister (designer), Alex Atala (chef), Ole Scheeren (architect), Sam Bompas (architectural foodsmith), and Charles Spence (neuroscientist) among many others.
