Herman Miller has been researching and designing products for the workplace for almost 100 years.

Over that time, we have gained much insight into what people need around them to make work more efficient, more collaborative, and more comfortable. Since the introduction of the Executive Office Group, the first ever ‘systems’ furniture in 1944, Herman Miller has been responding to the changing needs of people at work.

As the demands we place on the workplace increase, every element of the working environment needs to support the way we work more efficiently. And storage is no exception.

In thinking about storage, our goal was to make the space work harder, for both the organisation and the individual. We achieved this by using ‘systems’ furniture thinking to provide a solution which is multifunctional and can be completely integrated.

Stem was developed in the UK by our International Research and Development team.
