Joel Berman Designs Haworth’s “look” for the 2010 Olympic Games

Dec. 4, 2007

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA - Internationally acclaimed glass artist Joel Berman has created a design that Haworth will incorporate into its "Look of the Games"- commemorating Haworth's sponsorship of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. The curvilinear design suggests winter, the motion of skiing and tracks left in snow.

Unique to Haworth, this design will work across various applications such as clothing, premiums and accessories, as well as in print and electronic presentation material. The "look" was designed to generate a sense of pride, ownership and excitement for employees with regard to the company's association with this world class event, and to help Haworth distinguish itself from other sponsors and spectators onsite during the Games. 

"We are honored that Haworth has selected Joel Berman Glass Studios' design to commemorate Haworth's sponsorship of the Vancouver 2010 Games", says Joel Berman. "We welcome the opportunity help Haworth celebrate its association with these Games."

Haworth is the official furniture supplier to the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC). Paul Smith, Haworth vice president of business groups Architectural Interiors & Wood Solutions, says of the design "I'm thrilled by its versatility and ability to add style and appeal to each application. It's a wonderful look."
