The Herman Miller Pop Up Shop opens today in New York City’s Soho neighborhood. The 6,000 square foot space will exhibit the recently announced Herman Miller Collection which aims to serve both consumer and commercial furniture needs. PSFK got an advance tour of the shop which is designed to encourage browsing and discovery. There is a nicely balanced mix of the familiar and the new. Eagle-eyed visitors will likely spot a few prototypes of forthcoming pieces Herman Miller will produce scattered around the shop.

Here’s a prototype sofa (which doesn’t even have a name yet) which will soon see production.

Divider walls within the space contain designer bio’s and shelving which displays material samples, accessories and small sculptures.

Herman Miller collaborated with a local gallery to select and display art within the space that complimented the furniture. The artwork is also available for purchase.

Beyond the furniture, which will be available to order at the shop, there is also a curated design accessories area stocked with Alexander Girard pillows, clocks, books and more.

We spoke with Ben Watson, Executive Creative Director with Herman Miller who talked about what visitors can expect to experience:


We’ll have more specific information about the Collection soon. Check out our photos from the space below or if you are in or planning to visit NYC in the next month, stop by and check it out in person.
