    I love that designers like Herman Miller have paved the way to understanding that something as simple as office furniture can be inspired. It is encouraging to see design as being such a large part of business now, with just this last year the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business opening a lab for design projects and the Economist holding a conference in London in March 2010 titled “The Big Rethink,” centered on design thinking.

    This is another great article on business design that addresses how companies like IBM and Mayo Clinic are incorporating design in everything they do:
