Award-winning industrial designer, TED Fellow, and innovator Dominic Muren explores the interconnections between designed objects, the environment, and society -- the tricky, complicated factors that make products "work" within different systems. His most recent book, Green's Not Black & White: The balanced guide to making eco-decisions, has appeared in six languages. He was awarded a 2010 TED Global Fellowship for his work on Humblefacture.com, an evolving manifesto which argues that by bringing factories down to a local, accessible scale, manufacturing can be made more environmentally, socially, and functionally positive.

Founder of the popular industrial design blog IDFuel.com, and contributing writer for Treehugger.com -- dubbed "The Green CNN"—Muren writes and lectures on industrial and interaction design at the University of Washington.

TEDxRainier is an independently organized TED event held in Seattle, Washington.
