  1. Unemployment up and manufacturing down - The economy sucks - Sound familiar?

    Yes, things are challenging at the moment but maybe it's not all doom and gloom. Maybe we can still make things in this country and make them well. Maybe with a little vision, ingenuity, and good old fashioned elbow grease, we can right the ship. LABOR OF LOVE is a series that explores the stories of small businesses that are still making things in America. Uncommon Brewers is one of these businesses. As a small craft brewery in Santa Cruz, CA, Uncommon Brewers has taken a unique approach to their product and marketplace. Take a look at how they are not just surviving in today's economy, but excelling.

  4. When it comes to unorthodox, yet hugely successful ways of producing and distributing cutting-edge furniture and product designs, look no further than a former Philips ceramic factory in Eindhoven. Here, Dutch design star Piet Hein Eek has brought a vision into being, a vision that encompasses social responsibility, efficiency, and sustainability to everyone's advantage: his own, as well as that of his business partners, employees, and clients.

    Graduating from the Design Academy Eindhoven and creating a pioneering cupboard made from scrap wood as early as 1990, the equally humorous, relaxed, yet hard-working Eek is surely at his creative peak these days. Learn all about his unique creative design universe in Gestalten.tv's latest interview feature.
