The Michael Kalil Oral History Project consists of recorded sound interviews with colleagues, collaborators, and friends of interior designer Michael Kalil (1943-1991). Jean Gardner, Karyn Issa Ginsberg, and Marty Speigel discuss Kalil's education, career, and ideas with project archivist Jennifer Larson. Kalil's work—incorporating varied and diverse principles of architecture and philosophy—was considered by many to be revolutionary in the 1970s and 1980s. Recordings are all in English.

The Michael Kalil Oral History Project grew out of the processing of the Michael Kalil papers (KA.0119) in the Kellen Design Archives. Many of the questions covered in the interviews directly pertain to the papers, which are open and available for research consultation.
