    introducing-pilot-hero Embodying refinement, comfort, and craftsmanship, the Pilot Chair is unmistakably contemporary but modern in sensibility. It features a cast-aluminum structure that links the crane-neck, 360-degree swivel base to the assembly of the seat and back, creating the impression that the cantilevered seat is almost floating.

    Also designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby and taking cues from the aesthetic principles of modernism and pragmatic considerations of the height-adjustable stools manufactured for sewing professionals in the mid-century era, the Knoll Piton Stool and Side Table are equally well suited for industrial tasks and domestic settings.

    The Piton Stool is available in a fixed or height adjustable stool or a side table. It is available in many top and base finishes.

  • 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 Striad Chair is avaialble with a wire base or a 4-star The Striad Lounge Chair is available with a wire base or a 4-star swivel base, in black, white or chrome. 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 Herman Miller Striad Lounge Chair is a welcome edition to the classic lounge chairs that we all love and use everyday.
