Event: Meet the ICON - Elena Manferdini

Amy Devers is an artist, designer, maker, host/producer of design-related media, and Emmy Award-winning television personality.

A book smarts + street smarts double threat; Devers is armed with both formal education and practical hands-on experience. She holds an MFA in Furniture Design from the Rhode Island School of Design, has done a major stint as a chief prototype fabricator and machine shop foreman, and has spent years as an independent designer/builder of furniture, art and interiors. A fine artist as well as a designer, she has exhibited internationally in galleries and museums.

She’s also made a name for herself on the small screen, demonstrating her skills and know-how as the host of several television series dealing with topics ranging from home-improvement to international design, architecture, culture, and food.

In 2016 Devers launched Clever, a podcast about design. Consistently in iTunes’ top design podcasts, Devers and her co-host, Jaime Derringer, present a window into the humanity behind the design that shapes our world through candid and revealing conversations with leading creatives from all disciplines.

Active in the global design community, she travels the world as a speaker, design juror, and guest critic and lecturer at academic institutions.
