In 2020, Herman Miller was the first in the furniture manufacturing industry to join the WELL Portfolio program, with a goal to build on the company’s approach of human-centered design and sharpen its focus on cultivating environments that maximize the health and well-being of its employees, customers, and visitors. 

 

With people being at the core of their partnership with IWBI and the WELL Portfolio program, the team at the Chicago Showroom placed a huge emphasis behind the concepts of Mind and Community. They also prioritized the Materials and Movement concepts. Some of the features that were implemented in the design include:

  • The placement of live plants and use of natural patterns, shapes, images, and other materials to create an inviting and tranquil environment

  • Operations and Policies that align in support of mental health and well-being

  • Dedicated spaces to safely bring people together and foster an active community

  • Integrated art and design elements that celebrate culture and diversity to create a place of uniqueness and sense of belonging

  • Furnishings that contribute to healthy air quality, long-term emission control and promote material transparency

  • A variety of ergonomically supportive workstations to support physical well-being
