Wireframe Sofa Group

Designed by Sam Hecht and Kim Colin, 2012

Taking steel wire, a material long revered in the Herman Miller Collection for its strength and utility, Sam Hecht and Kim Colin have created a versatile seating group that answers today’s need for comfort, durability, and mobility. The sofa’s multilayered, upholstered foam cushions provide a strong visual counterpart to the steel frame and render it about half the weight of conventional sofas, making cleaning and moving the furniture around in tight quarters significantly easier. Available in a white or black frame, the two- or three-seat sofa and club chair and ottoman options adapt easily to meet the evolving needs of a casual yet sophisticated space.

Eames Rectangular Coffee Table

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames, 1946

Charles and Ray Eames’ continuous exploration into the possibilities of molded plywood finds new shape in the Rectangular Coffee Table, an update to their well-known molded plywood coffee table. Available in white laminate, walnut, ebony, or white ash, the design shares the same clean lines and elegant simplicity with all of their Molded Plywood Family—from chairs, to tables, to folding screens. In form and spirit, it brings beauty and usefulness to any living, working, or lounging environment.

Eames Upholstered Molded Plywood Lounge Chair

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames, 1946

Charles and Ray Eames’ technique for molding sheets of lightweight plywood veneer into gently curved shapes helped revolutionize modern furniture. Their Molded Plywood Lounge Chair—available with a wood or metal base—imparts a soft appearance to a hard material, resulting in an inviting seat with unexpected comfort. The numerous finish options, as well as the option for upholstery, which was reintroduced two years ago, continue to push and evolve the Eameses’ molded plywood designs.

Since their inception, in 1958, as outdoor seating for industrialist J. Irwin Miller’s Columbus, Indiana, home, the Eames Aluminum Group chairs have been welcome anywhere that comfort and style are required, be it a conference room, executive suite, hotel or building lobby, or living room or den.

Tuxedo Component Lounge Group

Designed by BassamFellows for Geiger, 2011

Marrying the flexibility and functionality of sectional seating with the elegance of a highly tailored sofa, BassamFellows’ Tuxedo Component Lounge is built on a series of simple base elements from which a full array of configurations is possible. Its modular grid allows for endless variation: seat, back, corner, and arm units can be coupled with single-, double-, or triple-base platforms. Quilted seat and back cushions provide handcrafted detail and a softly textured surface, and a non-quilted version is available for those who prefer a more minimal profile.

Noguchi Rudder Table

Designed by Isamu Noguchi, 1949

Two years after the introduction of his glass-topped table, Noguchi created a second piece for Herman Miller: the Rudder Table. Taking its name from the shape of its single wood support, the table’s base is rounded out by two simple metal hairpin legs. With a biomorphic shape similar to that of the glass-topped table, the Rudder Table enjoys a visual lightness and a material affinity with other pieces in the Herman Miller Collection. This updated archival design was adapted in collaboration with the Noguchi Foundation and is available in walnut, ebony, or white ash.

Rolled Arm Sofa

Designed by Ward Bennett for Geiger, 1970

Ward Bennett’s work has been long revered for its contemporary, understated luxury. His sensuous yet minimal Rolled Arm Sofa has universal appeal and can move from residential to commercial spaces with ease. Its generous, low-slung, architecturally scaled volumes and crisply mitered upholstery provide a graceful silhouette. Perched on recessed solid wood legs and produced in walnut or ash, Rolled Arm is available in three sofa sizes or as a club chair.

H Frame Coffee Table

Designed by Ward Bennett for Geiger, 1965

Ward Bennett once said, “I am interested in the essence, the bones, in contrast to surface ornament. In any product, I ask myself: Does it work? Will it last?” His H Frame Family, with its utilitarian form and precise proportions, more than meets these goals with various combinations of open shelves, file drawers, and enclosed storage. The refined, minimal forms allows the materials come to the fore—and the configurations are numerous: tops may be selected from a wide range of stone, wood, and glass, and the steel frame comes in three different finishes. Thanks to their refined simplicity, the tables are as welcome in an executive office as they are in a living room.

Bumper Lounge Chair

Designed by Ward Bennett for Geiger, 1966

Based on George Washington’s 18th century swivel chair, with its short seat and notable lumbar support, the Bumper Lounge Chair is a bucket seat in the most classic sense. Comfort is achieved in a deceptively simple, nearly seamless form. The arm cap is shaped from one continuous piece of fabric or leather, as are the inner and outer shells. Available with a 4-star swivel base, the Bumper Lounge Chair makes a graceful addition to any setting—commercial or residential—that requires a relaxed and supportive spot to work, meet, or decompress. Bumper is also available as a side chair with a 4-leg base, as well as a conference chair with a 5-star caster base.

Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames, 1956

Charles and Ray Eames created the lounge chair and ottoman as a gift for film director Billy Wilder, with the goal of creating “the warm, receptive look of a well-used first-baseman’s mitt.” The resulting design entered design history books almost immediately. Still produced using the same combination of handcraftsmanship and manufacturing technology employed when Herman Miller first began making the set in 1956, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman is now available in an all-black version.
