First previewed at MillerKnoll’s Design Days in Chicago, Fuld The official release of the new version has been made. Herman Miller’s The first nesting chair was designed in collaboration with German designer, Stefan Diez It is unlike any other. What stands out among other nesting chairs is Fuld’s flexibility to reconfigure workspaces without sacrificing style, with a sleek, minimalist design.
”I am thrilled to have designed the first nesting chair for Herman Miller,” says Diez. “There’s no other company that cares so much about engineering and quality. It’s very supportive, it’s quite unparalleled, very forward-thinking. The collaboration with Herman Miller never feels like it’s driven by constraints, but driven more by an idea. It’s clear what we’re working for: The product that comes out from the process is not a product that is a compromise, and that’s what I love.”
It was Diez’s commitment to the environment that led to Fuld’s design – a pioneering one-piece construction in an inverted Y shape – that results in less production waste. The chair’s back includes a bit of elasticity, keeping you comfortable as your body makes small shifts and movements. Only two materials were used to manufacture Fuld, and both are easy to recycle at the end of the chair’s lifetime. The 3D Knit fabric seat can be ordered in a 50 percent post consumer recycled version. It’s knitted to the chair’s exact dimensions, so there’s no fabric waste here either.
“We’re excited to welcome Stefan Diez to the Herman Miller portfolio after his work for the wider MillerKnoll collective,” said Malisa Bryant, Senior Vice President of Global Product. “Diez prioritizes sustainability and innovation within his designs which have long been core values for Herman Miller.”
Fuld comes in two- and three-color combinations.
