Herman Miller Swoop Chair

Herman Miller® Founded 1923 (Zeeland, Michigan) Herman Miller is a design and manufacturing company based in Michigan. There really was a Mr. Herman Miller, but he never worked for the company. (He was the father-in-law of the company president, D.J. De Pree.) The company continues to produce licensed works by Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Alexander Girard and Isamu Noguchi, as well as Bill Stumpf, Don Chadwick and a continuing list of today’s top talent. Eames® Lounge and Ottoman Eames® Dining Collection Nelson™ Bubble Lamp® Herman Miller’s Honeybees. In 1995, Herman Miller moved into its new manufacturing facility, named the “GreenHouse” because its interior resembles that of a greenhouse. The name also acknowledges the fact that this William McDonough-designed structure was selected by the U.S. Green Building Council as a pilot for the development of its LEED certification process. A few years after the company moved into the building, thousands of paper wasps appeared and began building nests on its exterior, eventually making their way inside. So came an opportunity for creative problem solving, as Herman Miller was committed to avoiding chemical insecticides. Instead, they turned to nature, bringing in 12 honeybee hives, with approximately 600,000 honeybees. Wasps and bees are not natural friends, and once the bees took over the area, the wasps moved on. Bonus: The bees cross-pollinate the 45 acres of meadows that surround the building, resulting in a luscious sea of wildflowers – and even better, lots of sweet honey. As a result, Herman Miller has karma-rich GreenHouse Honey to share with clients and visitors. Explore All Herman Miller® Designs

What’s In It For You Product Story Performance Design Family Product StoryDuring his time as an instructor at the California College of Art, industrial designer Brian Kane observed how students interacted with furniture in public spaces on campus. He noticed that very few of them sat in what might be considered a traditional way. They perched on arms. They curled up. They sprawled out. This observation inspired a versatile and fluid design response, which became the Swoop family of lounge furniture. Casual, Comfortable, ModularThe sweeping curves of Swoop’s modular seating components were designed to make the furniture comfortable for many different sitting positions. Coordinating box tables can be used in-line with modular seating, and work tables fit perfectly over armrests. Coffee tables function as stools with the addition of a cushion top. All components work together in countless ways to create flexible, reconfigurable spaces where people can get together casually and comfortably. Sit HoweverWhile traditional lounge furniture inhibits movement, Swoop encourages it. Sit how you like, and change positions as you like. And when you need a work surface, pull up a table wherever you need it. Modular seating components can also be ganged together to allow a run of chairs or ottomans to create sofas or benches, which lend a sense of enclosure to help define a space. Work WhereverSwoop seating invites collaboration, providing the necessary comfort and support to keep focus and productivity high. Swoop work tables are freestanding, with heights that fit perfectly over an armrest to provide a non-handed work surface. Add an upholstered cushion top to a work table or coffee table to create a stool. Box tables are available with power outlets for easy connectivity. Sweeping CurvesBrian Kane designed Swoop for the way people sit today—in a word, personally. Because there are no hard edges or 90-degree angles, the “swooping” form created as the arms curve into the seat accommodates a variety of postures and positions: upright with a laptop at the ready, or reclined with a cup of coffee; legs crossed, feet up, or settled in. Aesthetic RangeWith an extensive range of upholstery fabrics, veneers, laminates, and colors, Swoop also suits your personal style—from classic to expressive. Make a color statement with fully upholstered armchairs, club chairs, and ottomans. Tone things down with the lightness of the plywood lounge chair. Combine tables and chairs for configurations that meet practically any need. A Full Family of Lounge Furniture The Swoop family includes plywood lounge chairs with exposed wood shells—a subtle reference to the iconic designs of Charles and Ray Eames—as well as fully upholstered club chairs and modular seating components. Combine them with work tables, coffee tables, or box tables in countless different ways, adding flexibility to public spaces or common areas.
