Herman Miller, known for collaborating with world-renowned designers to deliver best-in-class workplace solutions, is now expanding its partner network through the technology sector to bring holistic collaboration solutions to customers in North America with Living Office Settings.

This new offer integrates Herman Miller’s innovative furniture designs with collaborative technology solutions from a range of leading technology companies. Living Office Settings uses an organization’s workplace strategy as a guide to align surroundings, furnishings, and tools in harmony with people allowing work to flow seamlessly in every setting.

“Herman Miller works with the most innovative designers and thinkers in the world to create products and solve problems. Our approach for integrating furnishings and technology into high-performing work settings is no different,” said Greg Bylsma, President of the North American Contract Market. “Our research gives us a deep understanding of how people work and the tools and furnishings they need to do that work. By bringing together the best minds in the tech-services industry, our dealers can deliver outcomes that avoid the frictions of the traditional process.”

With our partners, we have streamlined the process of creating, specifying, and deploying integrated solutions to help customers and their design partners save time and money.

Our collaborative-technology partners include:

Logitech – As teams continue to become increasingly dispersed, Herman Miller and Logitech strive to make remote video conferencing more intuitive, effective, and engaging through thoughtfully integrated furnishings and collaboration tools. The environments we create are places where people feel more connected to each other and to the work they are sharing.

Whitlock – For US customers, Herman Miller works with Whitlock to offer full lifecycle media collaboration services. The partnership ensures an attractive, comprehensive setting design that provides an uncomplicated and well integrated audio, video, and team working experience with an option for 24/7 support.

Genesis – For Canadian customers, Herman Miller is partnering with Genesis, a national collaboration firm focused on Connected Experiences – how people use and adopt technology in their spaces. Herman Miller works closely with Genesis on every element of projects to achieve seamless furnishing and technology design and deployment.

Crestron – Together, Herman Miller and Crestron solve calling, conferencing, collaborating, and presenting challenges so the experience of meeting is more intuitive and productive.  Herman Miller’s Living Office design framework and Crestron’s technology solutions shape workplaces that ignite people’s potential.

Robin – Robin makes it easier to find and schedule the right room with the right tools so people and organizations can operate more efficiently. Using Robin room utilization, Herman Miller and its partners help organizations optimize the spaces that are underperforming.

Living Office Settings is another way Herman Miller is introducing Workplace Services into its contract business offer as part of a toolkit to improve all aspects of the work environment. Whether an organization is aiming to enact a cultural shift, increase efficiency, or scale technology for people and their work, Herman Miller’s team of specialists will help shape a workplace where the people propel organizational growth.
