lost in thought
with Melissa Steach

Human Factors & Ergonomics Specialist, Herman Miller

I'm inspired by audacious people.

To me, brilliant is the ability to deliver truth with both candor and kindness.

My favorite app is Audible.

When I'm having a creative block I turn off my phone and go for a very long walk or take a nap.

My favorite brand is nature.

My favorite color is Papaya Red.

My dream project is well-paid, well-staffed, and requires lots of well-funded travel. Oh, and I'm the boss.

The best advice I ever received was "Honey. So long as you're running someone else's race, you'll never win your own."

The very next thing on my to-do list is finish packing for Cuba!

My dream collaborator is Anthony Bourdain.

At least once, everyone should live where they are the racial and cultural minority.

The best way to unwind after a long day is to cook and make love.

The most overused word in meetings today is "Brilliant".

At FUSE London, I can't wait to meet a bunch of cool creative nerds.

If I had a one year sabbatical, I would design and build a large home, fill it with a mixture of art, accessories, and furniture all hand-made by family, friends, and myself, then have a HUGE party!At the moment, I'm obsessed with copper.

As of now, I'm totally over #hashtags.

I'd define my personal style as clean.

My tools of the trade are my thumb and feet as measuring apparatus.

The biggest thing that has changed since I started in the industry is the consumers' level of education and expectation.

I'm happiest when making stuff with my hands.

I lead by design.

I wish I could be omnipresent.

I'm proud that I know how to make stuff.

My playlist is schizophrenic.

You can usually find me laughing.

The last stamp on my passport was Peru!

The next stamp on my passport is Cuba!

When I look back on my career I hope to be very old.

I still hope to visit outer space.
