Noah Murphy-Reinhertz | Sustainability Leader, Explore Team Space
Noah Murphy-Reinhertz is an industrial designer and the Sustainability Leader of Nike’s Explore Team Space. Bringing years of consulting experience into a dynamic brand, he spearheads the integration of sustainability into all aspects of advanced design. Previously as the director of industrial design at fuseproject, he led and created projects on the cutting edge of furniture, personal electronics, cosmetics and robotics.
Murphy-Reinhertz is an occasional lecturer in Stanford University’s design program; led his own independent design practice; served as an adjunct professor at the California College of the Arts; and designed at Meyerhoffer Studios. He earned a joint bachelor of arts degree in industrial design from the University of San Francisco and California College of the Arts.
Murphy-Reinhertz believes achieving great design is an exercise in practical idealism; creating meaningful products by blending design vision with users’ needs and the demands of manufacturing. This approach has yielded market-moving and award-winning designs for clients such as Herman Miller, Samsung, Google, One Laptop Per Child and Jawbone.
He is also a frequent collaborator with the SF-based artists Futurefarmers. These works have been exhibited around the world and at NY MoMA, The Headlands Center for the Arts and the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.
