One of the design world's most influential couples since Charles and Ray, Katherine and Michael McCoy will lead a panel discussion with three former students next Wednesday as part of the Cooper-Hewitt Education Program.

As co-chairs of the graduate program in design at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, for 23 years, the experimentalism and openness to theory they encouraged at Cranbrook continues to bear fruit. In 1995 the McCoys left Cranbrook to form High Ground Design, where they continued in their role as educators with studio-based programs for designers administered in the firm's Boulder, Colorado, setting.
