As the company itself so accurately states, “Our lives don’t stop outside the walls of our buildings.” Well known for its longstanding contemporary furniture design, the latest Herman Miller collection takes shape with an outdoor-geared range of seating and tables. Specifically engineered to withstand the elements, the 2012 Outdoor Collection draws inspiration by returning to facets of the original Eames Aluminum Group Lounge Chair of 1958. The 2012 iterations feature the same modern aesthetic as their already well-known predecessors and are offered in a minimalistic white or charcoal black finish. The aluminum chairs are completed by an intricately woven fabric that afford both a sleek appeal as well as functional weather resistance. Check the Herman Miller website for availability.
