Fast Company profiles Smith and highlights some of his favorite things:
"Ken Smith is not one to blend in. The New York -- based designer moves beyond earth and stone in his work, often employing surprising elements such as bright synthetic flowers and plastic rocks. "Landscapes are made up of all sorts of synthetic things, and most people try to hide it," he says. "I don't.""
Other items on Smith's list include a photograph of him with Lawrence Halprin and a Tumi travel bag.
