Honoring the talent and innovative thinking of interior design students and showcases emerging professionals in the interior design industry.
Project Title
Homffice
Homffice is inspired by traditional American ideas of home. The main work station area is designed as a living room, private offices are set up as “bedroom” spaces, and conference rooms are designed like dining room spaces with movable coffee carts and cabinets. The office also contains three indoor gardens (fun and relaxing “moments”) that serve to inspire employees in their day-to-day work and ease their stress from demanding tasks.

Project Title
Regeneration
Regeneration focuses on the regenerative furniture design process through departmental organization and was inspired by Indiana’s Cataract Falls, a nature park two hours north of OFS Brands Headquarters. Dropped and slatted ceilings mimic the natural flow of water to add ambiance and height variations. In the hallway, a wall graphic of inspirational quotes and company images display the OFS Brands’ values and history, while the adjacent vegetated wall replants trees in honor of employees of the month.
