About the Designer
Williams Sorel is a California-based design studio established by Otto Williams and Jess Sorel in 2007. Prior to launching their own firm, Otto and Jess were the creative force behind Metro, by Steelcase. Their designs for Metro won more than 20 awards, most notably for "Bix" and "Topo", two systems, which defied conventional office furniture categories. During their tenure at Metro, Otto and Jess developed a passion and reputation for exploring the boundaries between work and life in an effort to humanize the modern workplace.
The designers have said "we are thinking less about categorizing office furniture and residential furniture, and thinking more about the experiences of working and living in spaces, and the artifacts you need to support both narratives simultaneously. There's really a move to allow furniture to be furniture again, as opposed to equipment. In a sense, the office is being dismantled."
Together they hold numerous design and utility patents and their work has been published in Abitare, Azure, Contract, Fast Company, I.D. Magazine, Interior Design and Metropolis. Otto holds a BFA in Industrial Design from Rhode Island School of Design. Jess holds a BFA in Industrial Design from The California College of the Arts.
