Kyle's connection with Haworth began during his first NeoCon visit. The Haworth showroom left an indelible mark with its spirit of innovation and design-forward approach. From the beginning, the commitment to creating chairs that are more human and less machine struck a chord with Kyle.

I'll tell you what I fell in love with about Haworth from the time I started here. The conversation in the studio was already all about how we could create a chair that was more human, less machine. That design philosophy resonated with me, with who I am as a designer. It fit right in with my own personal philosophy.
