Design Within Reach sponsors a Creative Crossfire series on design the second Tuesday of each month. Co-sponsored by the Industrial Designer's Society of America (IDSA), this could be a yawn, but it could also be surprising given DWR's brand new energy and retail push into our city. You be the judge. MGR "Come down and listen to a vibrant and absorbing debate on design as part of our Creative Crossfire series. We will welcome five senior-level creative managers from the worlds of advertising, fashion, product development and marketing to the Studio for a panel discussion on current hot topics in the design world. Please RSVP to soho@dwr.com by Sunday, April 11." Tuesday, April 13, 7-9pm 142 Wooster Street (between Prince and Houston) 04/06/04 10:30AM
