Herman Miller, a global player in furnishings and related technologies, has always been a leader in bringing innovative technologies and materials. Keeping its tradition of bringing human centric designs along with tech innovations, the company recently launched its Atlas Office Landscape workstation and Cosm chair in India. This comes at the back of Herman Miller opening a new 2500 sq. ft. state-of-the-art office facility in the heart of Bangalore, supporting India and various other geographies across the world in terms of design, IT, R&D, finance and others.
Atlas Office Landscape Workstation has been designed by famous designer Tim Wallace, keeping in mind its suitability for the new age workplace designs. This workstation not only is ergonomically designed but is built to fit all workspaces. It brings together height-adjustability and collaborative working, while offering flexibility without being constrained by structures.
Cosm chair designed by Studio 7.5, offers great comfort and performance. It uses a revolutionary technology: Auto-Harmonic Tilt. This technology instantly responds to the user’s body movement when seated and provides optimal support and a more neutral balance. For this reason, Cosm chair has been included in the TIME Magazine’s list of 100 Best Inventions of 2019, calling it the ‘pinnacle of personalization’. It has also received the prestigious Red Dot Best of the Best Product Design Award in the ‘Office Chairs’ category.
