This selection of projects is a representational portfolio of the work of twenty senior-level undergraduate Industrial Design students. The students were briefed to address the challenges associated with one of following interactions in the workplace: face-to-face, digitally mediated or human-to-tools. The projects consider how furnishings act as critical components in creating a naturally-human total user experience of work.
Herman Miller has chosen to exhibit the projects of project winner, Alexander Bennett, and runners-up, Emily Gammon, Maritza Garcia, Kat Given, Tony Han, Richard Luo, Tal Rosenblum, and Gino Santaguida. Other participants in the project were Heather Allen, Killian Castner, Ariel Christopher, Joe Colleran, Ryan Fox, Edward Fry, Ramsey Haefner, Stephanie Lawrence, Oscar Rodriguez, Alex Romeo, Kyle Sheth, and Kyra Wilson-Houck. The course was taught by Professor Josh Owen with Teaching Assistant Bridget Sheehan.
