Osman Khan: Haworth Collaboration

June 16, 2017

Stamps Associate Professor Osman Khan’s interactive art, currently on view in the Haworth showroom at the NeoCon office trade show in Chicago, is the focus of a new MLive article.

Haworth’s showroom in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart proved an apt canvas for Osman Khan’s unique art.

The University of Michigan art professor, who describes himself as an installation artist, created two interactive pieces in the 30,000 square-foot space during NeoCon this week. The artwork highlighted the ideas behind the Holland company’s latest office furniture and products.

Khan says he enjoyed being part of a project that explored the future of workspace.

“If you think about it, the office is no longer an austere place but an extension of the way we live,” Khan said. “I don’t want to quite say it is our living room because I believe you want to separate work and life every now and then, but I think there is a certain comfort that is being promoted.”
