Chair_One is a truly unique seat. The shell is a structure of flat geometric shapes that join up around the edges, like a soccer ball. The shape was the fruit of lengthy preparatory studies, using sketches, cardboard models and prototypes before moving on to production in die-cast aluminium. The chair comes in a choice of finishes: it may be polished for truly durable brilliance, treated with sputtered, fluorinated titanium, or painted for outdoor use. It is available in two versions: a stackable chair with aluminium profile legs, which may be polished, anodized or painted, to meet any needs for home, contract or outdoor settings; or a fixed or swivel chair with a cement base painted transparent that enhances its pleasingly rough texture, typical of contemporary art and architecture.
Herman Miller has partnered with the world's leading designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, George Nelson, Isamu Noguchi and others to produce innovative products for home and office. Herman Miller's belief in design as a way to solve significant problems for people stemmed from the pragmatic view of the Bauhaus and continues today with many leading designers from around the world.
