A much better chair
Designing the Limerick chair allowed Tom Newhouse to exercise two of his passions – the study of emerging office issues and the implementation of socially conscious, green design concepts.
He observed that temporary seating was being used in offices more and more, so he made Limerick chairs light, stackable and easy to move. But then he added something unexpected. He made Limerick chairs highly ergonomic, a feature rarely found in side chairs.
And because one of Newhouse's highest priorities is preserving the environment, he made the chairs 100% recyclable. “I have been passionate about this issue for many years,” he says, “and that's one reason why I love to work with Herman Miller.”
