Open:Close Party

What happens when an experience design studio builds a bookstore wine bar? Mayhem.

For an epic decade, we’ve been dreaming about combining our greatest passions: books, bubbly, art + design, and Bob Ross.

Go behind the Studio 54 velvet rope 18 hours before this new Curiosity & Co. store opens to the public.

Have the first pick of the Wes Anderson coffee table book, see the Ann Hamilton pinhole camera originals, and read the back story of an organic wine curated by Grapes Gourmet.

Close Design Week and open Curiosity & Co. Two catalysts working to build flourishing futures in the state of lil’ Rhody!

Seth Goldenberg

Seth Goldenberg is an artist, social entrepreneur, and author who uses audacious thinking to catalyze long-term business innovation. Blending diverse practices of philosophy, experience design, storytelling, and public engagement, he’s developed a signature inquiry-based methodology called Radical Curiosity to imagine flourishing futures.

As the founder and CEO of Epic Decade, a design studio propelling cultural change, he’s worked with more than 50 of the Fortune 500 companies, leading cultural organizations, and governments from Apple and American Express to Boston University and Northern Alberta, Canada. Prior to launching Epic Decade, he was awarded a National Science Foundation grant for global learning, curated a major festival for the 2008 Obama Democratic National Convention, and led the Bruce Mau Design firm, advancing the Massive Change program and applying it to help launch the Oprah Winfrey Network.

In Spring 2022, he will publish Radical Curiosity with Penguin Random House that articulates his strategic framework as a practice for individuals, businesses, and communities to thrive during a time of significant reinvention.
