Edwin Arthur Schlossberg (born July 19, 1945) is an American designer, author, and artist. He specializes in designing interactive, participatory experiences, beginning in 1977 with the first hands-on learning environment in the U.S. for the Brooklyn Children's Museum. Schlossberg continues to work in the field and publishes frequently on the subject. He is the husband of Caroline Kennedy, daughter of John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. He has published 11 books, including Einstein and Beckett and Interactive Excellence: Defining and Developing New Standards for the Twenty-first Century. His artwork has been presented in many one-man shows and museum exhibits. In 2011, he was appointed to the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts by President Barack Obama.
Schlossberg's multi-disciplinary design firm, ESI Design, is based on Fifth Avenue in New York City. It has produced award-winning interactive experiences for both institutional and corporate clients. Signature projects include:
World Trade Center and World Financial Center Informational Kiosks
Schlossberg has been singled out as a "leader in interactive design" by Wired magazine.
Schlossberg's plans for a redesign of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland received public attention when ESI was engaged to head the project in 2007, but the Hall of Fame ultimately went with a different design because of cost considerations.
Schlossberg married attorney Caroline Kennedy on July 19, 1986, his 41st birthday. They have three children, all born in New York:
