Yurts and IDEO

A lot of people (myself included) love yurts because of their pleasing design.

And a lot of people love IDEO because it’s so good at design.

(If you’re not familiar with IDEO, it is one of the best-known design and consulting firms.)

Did you know that the conference room in IDEO’s Palo Alto office was modeled after a yurt “to give designers a quiet location in which to take notes or make impromptu sketches?”

Also, here’s a video about IDEO’s design process. It’s from 1999, but it still gives you an idea of what they are all about.
