Inside IDEO Founder David Kelley’s Ettore Sottsass-Designed Home

In a recent 60 Minutes segment, Charlie Rose and producer Katherine Davis profiled IDEO co-founder David Kelley (and revealed that even Steve Jobs himself struggled in getting AT&T to activate one of the first iPhones). This part of the piece, in which Rose pays a visit to Kelley’s Ettore Sottsass-designed home near Palo Alto, ended up on the cutting room floor, but CBS has released it as an online extra. “It’s supposed to be a humble, private house, where you don’t make a big deal out of it,” Kelley tells Rose. “That’s why it’s so plain on the front.” Sottsass studded the living room with bluish green boxes, to break up the space and make it more cozy.

Charlie Rose Talks Car Design

Welburn, Jr. of General Motors, and Phil Patton of The New York Times. Fewer than 30 seconds elapse before someone mentions Harley Earl. We warn you that you may come away from this video craving a Pontiac Solstice, but you’ll also hear about what makes a great car designer, what cars have in common with clipper ships, and why everyone still dreams of having a Ferrari in the garage. “You will note that this [conversation] happened a few months ago,” cautions Rose rather cryptically when introducing the segment. “Because I still had the black eye.”
