Watch video Mirra 2 User Adjustment Guide Mirra 2 Assembly Instructions Photo Gallery What’s In It For You Product Story Performance Design Family Product StoryAs work evolves, and we become more active, shifting from individual to collaborative work in an instant, we need tools designed to be as agile as our work style. To address this need, the designers of Studio 7.5 set out to create a high-performing chair that supports people who work in a constant state of motion. Immediate Comfort and Personalized ErgonomicsMirra 2 moves with you, at one with your body. When you sit, the seat and back adapt to you instantly. With dynamic surfaces that respond to your slightest movements and simple, intuitive adjustments to fine-tune the fit, Mirra 2 balances immediate comfort and personalized ergonomics in one sophisticated design. Support in MotionSupport for seated movement starts with a flexible, yet supportive design that allows your body to move freely and naturally. Mirra 2’s Loop Spine provides torsional flex, allowing you to stretch and reach laterally, while the Harmonic 2 tilt provides a smooth, balanced feel as you recline. Butterfly Back or TriFlexTwo back options help Mirra 2 work for a variety of people and applications. The ultra-responsive Butterfly Back results from inventing a method for merging a fabric layer with polymer veins to create a dynamic hybrid structure that acts like a suspension membrane. The TriFlex back meets more rigorous cleaning protocols because there is no fabric layer. PostureFitBoth Mirra 2 back options offer passive PostureFit sacral support to keep your spine properly aligned as you sit. And both are ventilated to keep you cool, as well as supported, no matter how active you are. Form Celebrates FunctionThe lean design of Mirra 2 brings a sophisticated profile and visual lightness to any space. An emphasis on performance is visible. The individual components and their function are apparent and celebrated, and vary accordingly in material and appearance. Versatile PaletteAs performance defines the look of Mirra 2’s components, their coloration allows significant options for defining the overall aesthetic of your chair or stool. Added selections for textiles, back loop and spine colors, and base finishes offer flexibility and encourage personalization. Family Mirra 2 work chairs and stools are both available in two back options, either the flexible TriFlex back or the ultra-responsive Butterfly Back. Stools extend the Mirra 2 design into any setting where seated and standing collaborators benefit from being at a common eye level. Design Story Ten years after the Mirra chair was introduced—during which over 1.5 million chairs had been sold—the designers of Studio 7.5 believed it was time to evaluate and, if necessary, rethink their original design. For one thing, they noted, work is evolving. People move, and the more they’re in motion, the more they need support that moves with them. Precisely because of the new agile way people work today, the designers found the idea of a highly individualized personal chair is still valid. While Studio 7.5 retained the athletic attitude and intuitive adjustments of the original, they advanced the material and form of this idea in virtually every aspect of Mirra 2. Using full-scale models, the designers of Studio 7.5 test the validity of a design and its component parts. For Mirra 2, every piece received this tactile, real-world treatment until the most elegant solutions emerged. Building on its legacy as the first office chair developed from the ground up with environmental responsibility in mind, Mirra 2 moves responsible design forward by advancing the use and reuse of materials. In redesigning Mirra, as in all their work, the mantra at Studio 7.5 was “every molecule counts.” By this they mean a close examination of every element is essential to using the least material possible while also advancing performance.

Mirra 2 Chair

Design Improved Butterfly BackrestThis is an innovation designed to support the back in all the areas that matter; lumbar, lower spine, shoulders. These are all crucially important areas when it comes to long hours at a desk or computer. Without proper support for all of them, the quality of your seating experience goes down, which in turn affects your work, mood, and health. The integrated fabric/polymer construction of the Mirra 2 chair’s back is designed to make sure that doesn’t happen, and to make sure you can sustain the quality of your health and work experience for long periods of sitting. The Butterfly Back keeps you as comfortable – and your back and spine as healthy – as possible. And, true to form, all of this happens intuitively with the Mirra 2 chair – no adjustments necessary. The lack of reliance on personal adjustments (which can, of course, still be made) is something that really sets the Mirra 2 Chair apart; it allows for professional, medical, technical adjustment, rather than just personal. Passive PostureFitHerman Miller designed the PostureFit system for the Aeron chair, their breakthrough product in ergonomic design. But for the Mirra 2 chair they did Aeron one better, developing the Passive PostureFit. The new version is designed to support your lower spine, the part of your back below the belt, and to do it without forcing you into an uncomfortable or unsustainable position. Research has shown that most office workers sit forward in their seat when the work, slouching. Mirra 2’s Passive PostureFit doesn’t correct this posture as much as it makes it easy and healthy to maintain. Camber contour at the base of the back makes it comfortable and natural to assume your normal position at work, and at the same time relieves all the stress and unhealthy alignments and tensions from your back. So the Mirra 2 has accomplished the dream of every teenager; healthy, comfortable, posture-maintaining slouching. The engineering behind this design feature is deeply impressive, as well as truly creative; not to eliminate bad posture by making it uncomfortable and therefore untenable, as many office chairs do, but cradle and support bad posture (which, as research shows, is actually normal posture) and convert in into comfortable, non-damaging seating. Neat trick. Improved Harmonic TiltHarmonic tilt uses advanced seat and spring technology to create the most comfortable and easy tilting and reclining possible. This is an under-researched and under-estimated aspect of office seating. Users of office chairs spend large portions of their time leaning, swiveling, and reclining, in several different positions and at many different stress levels. The ultimate office chair would address this little-discussed aspect of seating, and therefore improve vastly the enjoyment and comfort of the office chair. The designers and engineers behind the Mirra 2 chair resolved to do this, and they did it in an unconventional, innovative way (no surprises there). Mirra 2 is designed to provide the same tension and pull when it comes to leaning in the seat no matter what type or size of user is in the seat. The ensures that the user is always in complete control of the seat. In a word, it creates harmony between the user, their desire to recline or lean, and the chair. So, rather than attempt to make the chair super-fluid or have myriad adjustments to the recline function, Mirra 2 just made it simple, easy, and comfortable for everyone. Harmonic tilt is the unexpected answer to a little-asked question in the world of office chair design, and it improves the function and ergonomic rating of the Mirra 2 chair immeasurably. More Efficient AirWeave SuspensionThe seat on the Mirra 2 chair is designed with comfort, breathability and coolness in mind. AirWeave allows air to flow through the Mirra 2 chair’s seat, reaching the user and keeping him or her cool, collected, and productive. The seat also has a fixed depth, at 17″, which means there’s never a gap between the seat and the back of the chair, keeping you comfortable and supported. The seat’s front edge can be curved down to reduce its depth without actually moving the seat. It’s ingenious. And it’s natural, because it’s yet another paradox, for the last major design feature of the Mirra 2 to somewhat contradict the high-tech, engineering-focused features that came before. One of the best innovations used in the chair is one of the simplest, and most obvious; just make the seat breathable! Mirra 2 is an elegant chair with a lovely aesthetic that serves as packaging around a highly technical and complex series of engineering achievements.
