Design, Technology, What's Up
April 11, 2011
Free-flowing action with smooth adjustability, a unique visual indicator weight gauge, and compatibility with touch screen technology–these innovations appear together in our Flo monitor arm, which is sweeping design competitions around the world. And not just any design competitions. Most recently, Flo received a 2010 Red Dot award from what many consider the largest and most distinguished international design competition. It also received the office furniture industry’s coveted 2010 Best of NeoCon award in Technology Support and the 2010 National Ergonomics Conference and Exposition Attendees’ Choice award.
Flo is one of several technology support products designed by our U.K.-based subsidiary Colebrook Bosson Saunders (CBS). In fact, CBS manufactured the market’s first monitor arm back in the 1980s. The company is committed to providing adjustable workspaces that promote a healthy and productive working environment, which makes it exciting to spread the news about products like Flo.
Products, What's Up
December 10, 2010
Good morning from the National Ergonomics Conference and Exposition, sometimes known as the Ergo Expo, that runs from November 30 to December 3. I’m sitting in an empty exhibit hall, about an hour before the last day of the exhibition begins. Most attendees are at the day’s earliest presentations, though I am in the Herman Miller space staring at the Attendees’ Choice award that we won Thursday night. It was a real honor that the attendees chose the Flo Monitor Arm as the product worth acknowledging here at the show.
The sheer number of products on the show floor that support office ergonomics is astounding. I am humbled by all the good products that are out there.
As I type this blog on an Envelop desk, sitting in a SAYL chair, looking at Flo and our other ergonomic components that when put together truly do make a holistic view of a great environment, I feel very proud to be part of Herman Miller and the Thrive team.
