The doors of Chicago’s Merchandise Mart opened up this morning for guests attending the first day of NeoCon 2013 — and Herman Miller was right there to welcome them. The South Lobby entrance to the annual commercial interior design conference has currently been transformed into the Herman Miller Lounge, a place for people to spend a few moments relaxing, connecting with clients and colleagues, or simply recharging their gadgets.
The space is there to help make managing the conference easier. But it also happens to showcase — in quite a vivid way — some of our newest offerings and updated designs. Notably, anchoring the plaza-like setting is a long Layout Studio Table surrounded by Eames Aluminum Group Management Chairs upholstered in vibrant Alexander Girard Hopsak material. Along the sides, Eames Sofa Compact designs in classic Maharam Pressed Plaid join Nelson Pedestal Tables and new Eames Molded Fiberglass Shell Rockers to add comfort, utility, and an eye-catching punch of color.
It’s just a taste of the people-focused design solutions we’re presenting in our main showrooms during this year’s exhibition. If you’re at the show, please stop by Suites 318, 321, and 330 to experience our breakthrough “Living Office” concept. Not at NeoCon?
