Martin Keen is the lead designer for Mayline®-Safco®. Perhaps best known as the founder of KEEN Footwear, he enjoyed a long career as a footwear designer before turning to designing furniture. In 2012, he founded Focal Upright™, now part of the Mayline-Safco Active Collection. His first seating product was the Locus™ Workstation, an ergonomic standing desk and leaning seat, that was introduced at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York City. Martin, a graduate of the Industrial Design program at the Ohio State University, has received numerous awards for his work and is a frequent speaker at design and entrepreneurial events.
