This years Metaproject is being sponsored by world-renowned furniture manufacturer, Herman Miller, Inc.
Professor Josh Owen and Dan Rucker, Design and Technology Strategist at Herman Miller, are spearheading this year’s project. Other key players from Herman Miller include:
Gary Smith, Head of Design
Chris Hoyt, Design Manager
Anthony Rotman, Design Manager
The student designers will be addressing the challenges of building and enhancing relationships in the workplace. They will be focusing primarily on the vision of Herman Miller’s Living Office, which will allow them to debate the evolution of work and the current definition of a “relationship”, and test how furnishings and space empower and enable interactions that extend beyond a simple point of connection.
This year’s project will culminate at an event during New York’s Design Week in May.
