Neocon 2018

The 2018 Neocon was definitely a unique one for me!  

 

For over a year I worked with Joey Ruiter while he developed new product for Herman Miller.  Two months prior to Neocon I was contracted in to the Steelcase Model Shop to help with some sculptural elements that would be showcased at Neocon.  There was so much to be done and under a tight time line!  

I am thankful to have been a part of both teams!

Hanging chair components in a very specific way would be no easy task. We used some beautiful cable hardware to accomplish both the look and for ease of install.

Working with Joey Ruiter while he developed this design for Herman Miller was fantastic. It felt really satisfying to see this at Neocon.

Sharing a solution for near sighted children living in poverty

Meeting Eugene Koning in 2015, I was soon captivated by his life long dedication and passion to help the less fortunate with sight.
I helped to develop his process of making glasses for near sighted children and traveled to India for two conferences sponsored by Partners Worldwide.
Today I am still searching for a champion to help make this solution a reality.
