as well as universal tools like computers and laptops, people in the workplace are typically surrounded by their own physical objects. this can range from the content of their work to essential instruments of their profession and even treasured personal objects. the herman miller ‘metaform portfolio’ by studio 7.5, with its adaptable construction, aims to ensure workers have a comfortable amount of space for themselves and their possessions when completing any type of activity. ‘our goal is to enable people to assume roles similar to those of a craftsman in his shop, surrounded by what he needs to be most productive,’ says carola zwick of studio 7.5. ‘metaform empowers people by giving them more control over their environments and tools.’
