The traditional sofa is a wooden frame covered with padding and upholstery.
Designer Mark Goetz turned that tradition inside out, wrapping his sofa in a striking molded wood veneer shell to create both a structural frame and a dramatic profile.
Crisp, clean lines and ergonomic support—an instant Herman Miller classic.
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.
Beauty in the Details
To achieve the right look for the wood veneer shell, an intricate miter is incorporated at every corner, allowing the molded veneer to wrap completely around the sides and back.
There is only one seam on the entire shell.
Understanding that people don't just perch on the edge of sofa seat cushions, designer Mark Goetz made sure that his sofa would be comfortable, no matter what position you were in.
Thick cushions and a balanced seat depth—shallow enough to give correct support while sitting upright; deep enough to provide enough room for napping—provide both correct ergonomic support and comfort.
The sofa is not only beautiful—it has been designed to retain its beauty.
A durable finish protects the veneer shell for long use and easy maintenance. The cushion covers are zippered, so they can be removed easily for cleaning.
