  • Getting comfortable with the Striad Lounge Chair

    “Our hearts belong to furniture,” says Markus Jehs, who along with Jürgen Laub comprises Stuttgart-based design studio Jehs + Laub, the creators of the new Striad Lounge Chair from Herman Miller.

    The Striad Chair from Herman Miller Inspired by the structure and materiality of a ski boot, the Striad Lounge Chair is the latest entry into the Herman Miller Collection of lounge chairs. Available in three sizes (plus an ottoman), the designers looked at the Eames Soft Pad Chair and its combination of industrial aluminium and soft leather.

    We decided that the Eames Lounge Chair was a masculine piece of furniture, and maybe what we need to design is the female companion for it. "We decided that the Eames Lounge Chair was a masculine piece of furniture, and maybe what we need to design is the female companion for it", says Marcus Jehs.

    The brief from Herman Miller discussed how soft seating has become more important than in the past, because people work on their laptops and mobile devices wherever they are. If you go to a hotel today, for example, you see many people sitting around in the lobby working and playing on their devices in lounge chairs. We work and live in lounge chairs, at airports, furniture fairs, and in our homes.

    With an appreciation for Herman Miller’s roots and a strong connection with the company’s DNA (“We feel very close to them in terms of thinking about design,” notes Jehs), the studio was exceptionally pleased when the opportunity came to work on a new lounge chair. "The DNA of all Herman Miller products is similar. They start very industrial—from the base—then become very human, very comfortable, very soft, so you have both elements in one product, the industrial and the handcrafted." - Markus Jehs.

    As we started with the first sketches and 3D renderings, we thought about the market: What does it really need? Within the lounge category, we saw an opportunity for low chairs, high chairs, and cocooning chairs. We had the feeling with the first sketches that it looked a bit like a ski boot. With ski boots you have a hard plastic shell that makes it stable to mount to a snowboard or skis, and then you have a soft shell that is a little bit more flexible, and then you have a really comfortable part that is foam and covered with material.

They then went on to make full-scale models of the three sizes of the chair.

     Our goal was to create a chair that is both comfortable and still maintains the crisp tailoring. Jürgen Laub "Our goal was to create a chair that is both comfortable and still maintains the crisp tailoring." -  Jürgen Laub

    "We think a lounge chair that will be grouped with others should look more friendly, more inviting. To achieve that, our vision was to create softness in different forms with several layers of densities." - Jürgen Laub

The fabric choices are extensive and the shell and cushions can be specified in contrasting textiles, or the same textile for a consistent look.

  • The New Aeron - Herman Miller Remasters a Masterpiece

    Herman Miller has unveiled a new version of its iconic masterpiece, the Aeron Chair. Herman Miller has fine tuned the Aeron to be more responsive to today's work and today's workers, remastering the Aeron — ergonomically, functionally, anthropometrically, and environmentally. Introducing the new Aeron Chair...

     

    herman-miller-aeron-office-chair-furniture-design_dezeen_2364_col_13 With Aeron, materials don’t simply contribute to the appearance of the chair, they are the design. In revisiting Aeron, Herman Miller has made every effort  to significantly improve upon the comfort and performance of the original, while also creating a beautiful, harmonious look and feel through updated colors, materials, and finishes.

     

    Designed for a whole new working environment

    Guided by the original designers notions of “visual comfort” and their keen eye for aesthetic detail, Aeron was designed to harmonize with the environment in which it was placed. Recognizing that most environments look and feel vastly different today, Aeron’s colors, materials, and finishes have been completely reconsidered to enhance modern environments.

     

    herman-miller-aeron-office-chair-furniture-design_dezeen_2364_col_17 While the updated chair retains the same silhouette, it has been updated with a new suspension system and a revised tilt mechanism that respond better to different body types and activities. By altering the tilt of the frame by 1.8 degrees forward, it better supports the body in the upright position and across a wider range of postures.

     

    Aeron’s New Features:

    1.  8Z Pellicle for zonal pressure distribution and aeration
    2.  PostureFit SL for adjustable sacral and lumbar support
    3.  Intuitive adjustments for optimal comfort and customization
    4.  Holistic material palettes to enhance modern environments

     

    herman-miller-aeron-4 For the first time, Aeron is offered in three holistically curated material palettes that require no additional specification: Mineral, Carbon, and Graphite.

     

    Works Hard Everywhere, Like You Do

    For individuals sitting in Aeron, cross-performance design means the chair fully accommodates the widest possible range of activities and postures people adopt while working—from intense forward-facing focus to relaxed contemplative recline. Cross-performance makes Aeron suitable for a wide array of settings for today’s work—from workpoints to workshops.

     

    Personal fit for everyone, as easy as A,B,C. With chairs, one size does not fit all.

     

    inclusive_masthead.XL Based on an ends-to-the-middle design approach, Aeron comes in three sizes to provide a fit that is inclusive rather than exclusive—and delivers the same comfort to the largest range of body types of any chair. The chart below will help you decide which size is best for you.

    Designed for the environment

    With its dematerialized design (that includes 39% recycled content and is up to 91% recyclable), Aeron set a new bar for sustainability when it launched. With today’s update, Herman Miller has taken another step forward by reducing the weight of the chair by 3 pounds, while achieving a Cradle to Cradle Certified Silver status.

     

    herman-miller-aeron-2 Beautiful in all working environments, the new Herman Miller Aeron Chair retains the distinctive silhouette of the original iconic chair, but every component of the design has been updated to raise the bar for performance seating.

     

    With the introduction of the new Aeron, Herman Miller reinforces the company’s worldwide leadership in workplace innovation and high performance seating. The new Aeron chair is suitable for both commercial and residential users.
