Kimball International Announces Launch of Alternative Design Podcast

The Kimball International family is proud to announce the creation of the Alternative Design Podcast - a new podcast focused on empowering creatives to improve the human experience through the spaces they design. Each monthly episode of the podcast will feature innovators that spark conversations to challenge traditional ideas about how design can truly impact a space. Join host, Kaelynn Reid, to go deeper than the mainstream conversations buzzing around the industry and you’ll find an alternative way to celebrate the human experience through design thinking and unlikely inspirational sources.

In episode 1, entitled “Give the Buildings Yogurt!”, microbiologist Jack Gilbert, and biomaterial designer Rosie Broadhead discuss the fascinating world of microbiomes in the built environment, and how design can provide health and wellness benefits by leaning into good bacteria. Upcoming episodes will feature entrepreneur Maya Bird Murphy, Motown Funk Brother Dennis Coffey, and more. Follow @alternativedesignpodcast on Instagram and Facebook for more insight into each episode and previews for what’s coming next.
