Inspiration: How You Feel

Design Story: Think


Design Story: Brody

“Brody provides a sense of psychological safety when people feel protected from behind. They feel in control of their level of exposure to the rest of the environment around them. It allows you to relax and signals the brain that you’re giving yourself some time to focus. That prompts the brain to create more lateral connections and more creative thinking.” – Markus McKenna, Design Director, Steelcase Education”
