Furniture company Herman Miller has started producing their new office furniture collections designed by Yves Behar’s fuseproject and Industrial Facility. The two furniture collections are part of the American brand’s contemporary office design framework called Living Office, which was unveiled at last year’s NeoCon furniture fair in Chicago.

Yves Behar’s fuseproject designed the Public Office Landscape collection, which is designed to promote collaboration among co-workers. Each piece in the collection is designed to become a part of an open-plan workspace that allows people to work individually and transition easily into collaborative work with colleagues. The Public Office Landscape workspace can be configured in different ways. The collection features a seat module that integrates into the workspace and enables people to work at each other’s desk when needed. The collection also includes partition pieces that can be moved and rearranged to create workspaces for individuals or for groups.

Sam Hecht and Kim Colin of Industrial Facility designed the Locale collection, which is also designed to make it easy for people to transition from working privately to collaborating with their co-workers. The collection features rounded desks with heights that can be adjusted accordingly to allow people to work while seated or standing. The desks are connected together with a continuous base element that can also be used as extra storage space. The collection includes seats, shelves, and audio-visual modules.

Herman Miller’s Living Office framework aims to create a desirable workplace that is natural and promotes greater connection among the users, as well as creativity and productivity.

In a press release, Greg Parsons, Herman Miller’s Vice President, New Landscape of Work, said,

Today’s technologies allow us to work anywhere. So why come to an office at all? Living Office aims to provide to knowledge workers what the stage or recording studio offers to musicians- an environment optimized to inspire and enable people’s ultimate performance. By deeply understanding human motivations and their corollaries in space design, Living Office enhances both performance and satisfaction.

The Living Office office furniture collections are designed to help organizations create workspaces that fit their culture and at the same time cater to people’s individual work styles.
