Designed by Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub
for Herman Miller®
Introducing a new classic from Herman Miller, the company behind the Eames® Lounge,
Aeron® Chair and other revolutions in comfortable seating. To create the Striad™ Chair
(2016), Herman Miller partnered with German designers Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub,
who’ve been creating innovative furniture, lighting and interiors – including Suite 606 at
the Icehotel® in Sweden and the master concept for Mercedes-Benz® showrooms – since
founding their Stuttgart studio in 1994. In everything they do, Jehs and Laub are
dedicated to staying true to the form, materials and function of an object. “How a
design looks should not be far from what it does,” says Jehs. “Function brings its own
aesthetic.” Case in point: The form of the Striad Chair stems from the designers’ goal to
deliver unbelievable comfort. To achieve it, they created the chair in layers, like a ski
boot. It has a rigid outer shell for stability, a softer inner shell that’s molded to cradle the
human body, and perfectly positioned cushions for ergonomic support. Together, these
layers deliver the premium experience of supple, total-body comfort in a timeless,
graceful form. Made in U.S.A.
Made of a Polyester-based molded shell; molded natural fiber composite (hemp, flax,
jute and sisal) and thermoplastic polymer inner shell; dual-density molded foam
cushions; steel wire base with trivalent chrome or painted finish or die-cast aluminum
auto-return swivel base with polished or painted finish; fabric upholstery.
