In perfect harmony

Consider the Asari Chair by Herman Miller a new character in your furniture lineup. The chair was initially conceived as a sculpture and inspired by organic forms found in nature. By introducing crafted Maharam materials and unique color flood options, it’s designed to accent or understate with its quiet comfort.

Hard working soft seating

Beautiful in its simplicity, this chair’s form welcomes you with its gentle curves and upholstered frame. Hidden inside are innovative ergonomics. PostureFit adjusts to the lower back’s contours, filling the void where it meets the chair for a natural spine alignment. Tailored for you, a synchronous, self-adjusting tilt provides natural movement, while the seat pad minimizes pressure points and provides support.

In turn, the office becomes an experience that feels more like home instead of merely a location. The chair’s visual and physical comfort shows in the leather and fabric options. It’s sculptural form and everyday function—the best of both work worlds.
