A research book accompanying the launch of Hum. Minds at Work at Neocon 2008. To provide evidence of the investigation, exploration and design process that led to the development of the product. Furniture has always been designed to fit our bodies. Why hasn’t it been designed to fit our minds? To coincide with the launch of Kimball Office and Formway’s new product Hum, a book was created to support the research behind the development of the product. The book was designed to function as a tool for facility managers, human resource managers, architects and designers, charged with the task of creating and maintaining high performance workplaces. Its role as a communication piece is to provide evidence of the investigation, exploration and design process that led to the development of the product. This is an entirely pioneering case of evidence-led design. The book builds and amplifies the reputation of the product, and the company bringing it to market.
