Herman Miller Introduces Exclusive Collection by Luna Textiles
March 7, 2012
Herman Miller, Inc., has introduced an exclusive collection by Luna Textiles with imaginative patterns and colors that inspire. The three geometric patterns, Connection, Current, and Circuit are modeled from architectural forms and add a unique visual to the company’s materials offering.
"We share Herman Miller’s aesthetic and wanted to push it a little farther out, not to the extreme, but to the next level,” explains Luna Founder and President Anna Hernandez.
Current and Connection share a coordinated palette, and are intended to blend seamlessly together. Circuit is designed for upholstery application, with the natural warmth of the pattern and textural hand making it an ideal choice for seating applications. The combination of the three textiles offers a collection suited to make a visual statement together, or alone.
“Connection’s geometric pattern is purposely asymmetrical, giving it a very modern feel, yet it is timeless too,” said Hernandez. “Where Circuit pays homage to mid-century design in subtle and surprising new ways.”
Luna designer Ray Wenzel added, “We wanted to a make a statement with the Current pattern. Although it’s very contemporary, it has an organic feel to it, which was intentional."
Herman Miller’s relationship with Luna Textiles began more than 10 years ago when a Textile Alliance Program was formed to help the company introduce an increasing range of innovative and new materials to its furniture line.
“We have a wonderful relationship with Herman Miller and are honored to collaborate with them on this,” said Wenzel.
Connection and Current are woven with 100% antimony-free polyester, a construction that meets MBDC Gold certification criteria. Circuit is 100% recycled polyester. All three textiles are in price category 3 and are now available on systems solutions. Circuit is also available on seating solutions.
