From local sources
JASPER — Kimball, in partnership with Metropolis magazine, chose O2U as the winner of the Kimball Design Hack, a Smart Furniture Design Competition. The competition was open worldwide and received more than 120 submissions during the four-month competition with concepts that aimed to improve workplace satisfaction, comfort, engagement, health, wellness and well-being.
The winning concept brings nature into the workplace through a modular, smart gardening system. O2U can monitor the growth of small crops or plants, providing a maintenance-free way of integrating biophilic elements into the office while also improving air quality and providing healthy food options.
O2U won a minimum of $5,000 to be shared and a royalty of up to $25,000 if Kimball puts the concept into production.
Kimball is a brand unit of Kimball International Inc., which is headquartered in Jasper.
