With Herman miler and Fuseproject, I played a key role to design a physical interface button to interact between users and Live OS system.

The primary purpose of Live os is to encourage physical activity in workspaces that are mostly sedentary. Live OS-connected furniture automatically reminds users when they've been sitting for too long, either through gentle vibration or by lighting up the button attached to the surface.

Users on a height-adjustable desk can then raise the surface to a preset level with the touch of a button, while those on a fixed desk might just choose to take a break and step away from their workstation.

the system also incorporates sensors that capture anonymised data on how the furniture is being used. An accompanying dashboard crunches this data and presents insights based on it to employers.
