Smart Connected Brody

Product concept development for Steelcase's 2015 exhibition at NeoCon

Steelcase Education - Smart Brody Concept
As part of Steelcase's new product release, Brody was introduced to the market: 
"The ability to focus is a real challenge for today’s workers and students. The Brody WorkLounge creates a shelter from visual distractions, provides privacy and provides an enhanced sense of psychological security." The concept introduced a whole new feature sets for the platform including facilities connectivity and reservation, capacitive controls for audio and heating adjustment and asset utilization and tracking. 
Steelcase - Divisio Smart Screen
While working on developing Steelcase's point of view on Smart Connected Products and IoT, I collaborated on the concept for a Smart side screen that would later be integrated on Steelcase's Divisio platform. The concept allows the worker to control local reservation, look at sound and temperature levels and request for quiet zones on the open office plan.
Meshing several of this screens together would potentially allow facilities managers to better understand space utilization and demand.

Turnstone - My BIVI
As part of Turnstone's 2015 strategy I worked on the implementation of Mass Customization on Turnstone's BIVI platform. The concept includes changes in materiality and posture support for the platform as well as a 3D CAD library for 3D printing purposes through which users could edit and customized an array of platform compatible products.
