Herman Miller’s First Nesting Chair Is The Perfect Fusion Of Ergonomics, Innovation & Sustainability

Herman Miller’s supremacy in office chairs is pretty much undisputed. They’ve long since set their precedence, and have thoroughly maintained it. And you know how important a decision to choose the right office chair can be! We spend the majority of our day sitting on chairs, whether we’re working in our home office or a corporate one. Hence, this piece of furniture needs to be not only comfortable but ergonomic, and aesthetic as well. And to help simplify our decision-making process, Herman Miller unveiled their first nesting chair! Designed in collaboration with German industrial designer Stefan Diez, the nesting chair was first previewed at MillerKnoll’s Design Days in Chicago.

Designer: Herman Miller x Stefan Diez​

Dubbed Fuld, the newly launched nesting chair is truly quite unique and like no other. It is an efficient and effective solution for reconfiguring your workspace without compromising on style, sleekness, and minimalism. Fuld is a revolutionary one-piece construction featuring an inverted Y shape, which ensures that the production process creates less water. The back is incorporated with elasticity, to ensure the utmost comfort as you shift and move around.

”I am thrilled to have designed the first nesting chair for Herman Miller,” said Stefan Diez. “There’s no other company that cares so much about engineering and quality. It’s very supportive, it’s quite unparalleled, very forward-thinking. The collaboration with Herman Miller never feels like it’s driven by constraints, but driven more by an idea. It’s clear what we’re working for: The product that comes out from the process is not a product that is a compromise, and that’s what I love.”

Fuld was constructed using two materials, both of which can be easily recycled once the chair’s lifecycle ends. An optional 3D Knit textile seat is available as well. It is built from 50 percent post-consumer recycled content, and to the chair’s dimensions, so no material is wasted.

The nesting chair is available in dipped-in-color options such as seat, seat-back, and legs in a single color, and in dual color combinations as well. Fuld is an excellent launch by Herman Miller and Diez that perfectly fuses ergonomics, innovation, and sustainability.
