The Lab went to our local Herman Miller showroom this week for a preview of Embody, Herman Miller‘s next great task chair introduction. The chair has received a lot of press coverage so it was exciting to be able to see and sit in it.
Embody is revolutionary in the same way that the Aeron chair was when it was introduced. This new offering uses many unique methods for contouring to and fitting the body, including tiny ‘spring coils’ in the seat to allow for differences in pressure inch by inch. It also features a unique seat frame which allows you to sit sideways in the chair or other positions in which the chair frame normally prohibits you from doing.
The chair is 96% recyclable. This chair has so many features that you really have to see it and sit in it. There are two frame color options and 2 seating fabric options available.
All in all it is a super comfortable fit and while the look may take a few minutes to get used to, you’ll be sold by the functionality!
