Supersonic: The Design and Lifestyle of Concorde
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Join Lawrence Azerrad, Grammy Award-winning author of Supersonic, and Debbie Millman, National Design Award-winning host of Design Matters, for an evening of conversation on the ingenuity and enduring creative legacy of Concorde, the world’s first—and so far only—luxury supersonic airliner.
Supersonic explores the history, design, technology, and lifestyle of Concorde, the 1960s aircraft that could cross the Atlantic in under three hours. Yet, more than the time-bending capabilities of the aircraft itself, Supersonic celebrates the creative optimism and determination that made Concorde’s vision possible. Concorde commissioned notable designers including Sir Terence Conran, Roger Excoffon, Raymond Loewy, and Andrée Putman to create objects and spaces that enhanced the in-flight experience at every touchpoint.
In the tradition of Concorde, guests will receive a limited-edition gift box of Concorde memorabilia created specifically for this event, produced by Neenah Paper and Azerrad’s studio LADdesign.
