Herman Miller Collection

At Work

The same attributes that help designs from our past and present fit together in the Herman Miller Collection—beauty and utility in design—make these furnishings integral to many of the settings that support the ways people work today.

Active Lounge

Large, welcoming lounge area anchored by comfortable sofas from Tuxedo Component Lounge and Wood Base Lounge Seating and tables and side chairs from the Saiba family.

Active Lounge

With a range of guest and lounge seating, this setting supports multiple work activities simultaneously. Individuals looking for a comfortable spot to answer emails can find a home just as easily as teams looking for casual spaces to meet. Materials and finishes coordinate beautifully throughout this public-facing Plaza, communicating a sophisticated sense of identity for the organization while gracefully guiding visitors through the setting.

Lobby to Lounge

This lively central Plaza provides a pathway for impromptu connections—between colleagues if placed within a business environment, or among guests in a hospitality application. Its focal point, the serpentine sectional created from Bevel Sofa Group components and punctuated by Eames Tables and Eames Wire Chairs and Stools, provides a functional conversation piece. This draws people into the space and comfortably supports a range of activities while they’re there.

Two Settings, Various Activities

As the lines between work and life continue to blur, the importance of furnishings that lend a residential feel to work settings continues to rise. Adding comfortable lounge furnishings adjacent to Meeting Spaces provides a home for the short, impromptu warm-up or cool-down exchanges that occur directly before or after a more formal meeting. Around the spacious table, easy-to-adjust conference chairs assure that people can get comfortable quickly.

A Place at the Table

Because board rooms, conference rooms, and other formal Meeting Spaces commonly welcome guests as well as employees, they provide an opportunity to communicate something about the organization’s character and purpose through furniture and finish choices. This versatile Meeting Space combines subtle pops of fresh color with sophisticated neutrals and wood accents to make a memorable impression. The extended-length Eames Table accommodates a variable number of participants.

Optimized for Ideas

Although the configuration of furniture elements is similar to that of the next group space, this setting offers a very different aesthetic. This Workshop provides its resident team with everything it needs for team members to collaborate effectively—including an approachable standing-height work table and the choice of a secondary area set apart yet still connected to the team. Providing variety and choice within the setting is necessary to allow teams to divide and conquer different parts of a project.

Team Idea-Building

Team Idea-Building

Collaborative group work often benefits from settings like this Workshop, which is optimized to keep ideas flowing. Because the process of generating, prototyping, and evaluating ideas is not neat or linear, the setting allows people to arrange the furnishings to best support their process. It also provides a choice of different postures within the setting: standing-height tables for fluid brainstorming or comfortable lounge chairs where participants might refresh or seek a new perspective.
