The latest design for the workspace of the future.
30 August, 2010
Officially launched at Saturday in Design 2010, Arras is the first product to be released from the Herman Miller Research and Design Lab in Asia Pacific.
Designer Marc Fong and his team researched key requirements in the workplace experience across the region when considering this design.
Marc was on hand at Saturday in Design to meet with the community and explain in detail the design ethos and features of Arras.
Arras is a bench solution which enables you to sit anywhere and at any time, decisions informed by your work schedule, available space, the nature of the task, relationships with others and of course, personal preference.
Available in a palette of colours and finishes, it allows infinite expressions for designers to create a visual feast and as with all Herman Miller products, the design of Arras is guided and informed by Herman Miller Design for Environment protocol.
Five key features define Arras:
1. Minimal under-structure
2. Privacy on demand
3. Power access
4. Accessible accessories
5. User-needs driven storage solutions.
Designed for durability, Arras carries the comprehensive Herman Miller 12-year, 3-shift warranty.
Every component can be easily disassembled for end of life management and no components are chemically bonded and uses over 50% recycled content.
Rapidly renewable materials like bamboo and strawboard worksurfaces as well as FSC certified Greenfirst and EO worksurfaces are all available.
Arras is available nationwide from Herman Miller dealers.
