ai Design Group won the People’s Choice Award at the Good Design Challenge, a fundraising event held by Alfred Williams & Co. and Herman Miller to support the Joe Martin ALS Foundation. In total, the event raised over $3,000 for the Foundation, which supports families facing the challenge of living actively with ALS by providing free home care services.
For the challenge, eight design firms were asked to use a classic Eames molded plastic chair as a canvas for expression. The aiDG team, led by Interior Designer Lacey Johnson, used felt to create a sculptural surface inspired by the beauty and complexity of the human brain.
