People & Work
When your people succeed, so does your business.
People are the most critical asset to every organization. So why aren’t more offices designed to support their needs and activities? With Living Office, Herman Miller brings humanity back to the workplace to help your people, and your business, succeed.
Delivering an elevated experience of work
The offices many people work in today were designed to support processes and technology from another era. We see the potential for a new kind of office, one designed around the latest understanding of people, the work they are doing now, and the tools they need to succeed. This is a place where people will work not because they have to, but because they want to.
Through research, Herman Miller identified six fundamental needs that all people share—security, autonomy, belonging, achievement, status, and purpose. Living Office is designed to harness our innate motivations to fulfill these needs; it’s a place where every element feels right.
By recognizing that individuals and organizations have their own unique purpose, character, and activities, Living Office transforms the workplace into a powerful instrument that expresses an organization’s unique culture and progresses its unique ambitions.
