With Douglas Ball Inc. 2002-2006
In 2002 Herman Miller Inc. selected Douglas Ball to create his vision of the future workplace and system furniture. He invited Jeff Sokalski and Leon Goldik in Montreal to collaborated with the development team from Herman Miller. They worked together for just over four years to bring My Studio Environments to fruition.
My Studio Environments was introduced at NEOCON Chicago in 2006 and won Gold in the systems furniture category, and Best Of Show.
Throughout the duration of an almost five year period, we built a series of working prototypes in our Montreal studio. In tandem, the team at Herman Miller USA, built three pre-production prototypes at the Design Yard in Holland Michigan.
