Company: Herman Miller
An industry leader rethinks chair design, from the ground up.
In 2000, Herman Miller took its design expertise to an entirely new level with the Mirra chair. Using design-visualization technology, the company created a chair that is not only beautiful and functional, and 96 percent recyclable, but also made from recycled materials. Every aspect of the Mirra chair was captured and explored with digital sketching, 3D modeling, and visualization tools to make sure its materials, recyclability, ease of disassembly, and packaging are as environmentally friendly as possible.
