What's In It For You

Celeste Seating

Product Story

Celeste lounge chairs and sofas have a clean, contemporary look. With their compact scale and slender arms, they don't take over a space. They just look good in it while offering comfortable seating for casual meeting spaces, lounges, and reception areas. With their trim geometry and refined sense of proportion, Celeste chairs and sofas are at home in a variety of settings.

Celeste Seating

One, Two, Three

Celeste can be a chair, a two-seat sofa, or a three-seat sofa. And thanks to their modular design, the sofas sit as comfortably as the lounge chair. The structural foam back flexes as you move, and the generous seat is sized to provide relaxed sitting while maintaining the furniture's compact scale.

Inviting Appearance

The substantial seat base is complemented by the symmetry of slender arms and tubular steel feet, adding up to a pleasing compact scale. Spacers set the seat off a bit from the back.

Celeste offers an unusual materials option. The seat, back, and even welting can be upholstered in matching textiles or leathers, for a more traditional look, or in contrasting materials, creating a somewhat retro appearance. Leather arm sleeves can be added too.

Celeste seating complements Herman Miller systems and other furniture.

Celeste Seating

On a Roll

All Celeste chairs are available with front casters and handles on the back, making them easy to roll into position for impromptu gatherings or brainstorming sessions.

Celeste Seating

An Extra Surface

You can add convenient, pivoting tablet arms to chairs or sofas, so you can take notes or set your coffee mug down. Tablets can be positioned on the right or left arm of a chair; sofas can have tablets on both arms. They pivot 360 degrees so they are easy to move into position and push out of the way.

Design Story

Since starting his career, designer David Allan Pesso has licensed more than 130 original furniture designs in the U.S. and Europe and holds five U.S. design patents. Regardless of what he's designing, Pesso says he's "constantly striving for a clean, reduced geometry without extraneous details. I focus on economies of scale, and my goal is to attain more with less. I think Herman Miller's Celeste lounge seating is a good visual example of what I mean."

We agree. Pesso achieves his goal by contrasting a substantial seat base with the symmetry of minimal arms, tubular steel feet, and spacers that set the seat off from the back. The result is furniture with a progressive, contemporary look that has universal appeal.
