The award-winning OE1 Workspace Collection creates fluid individual and group spaces designed to quickly shift and adapt to changing business goals and personal preferences with minimal disruption. With a wide variety of configurations and a light, minimalist design, OE1 enables agility in a way that inspires new ways of working. The comprehensive collection includes mobile tables that can easily be pushed together or be broken apart, movable walls to define boundaries, height-adjustable workstations, storage trolleys and more.

Now, Industrial Facility has expanded on that offering with products that further enhance agility.

OE1 Sit-Stand Table is a new height-adjustable desk with a residential feel that can be curated in monochromatic expressions. The table is offered in three shapes – round, rectangular and rectangular with wrap – each with a sturdy, single-column base and a discreet power foot pedal to control height.

“Herman Miller is thrilled to continue our partnership with Industrial Facility to expand the OE1 Workspace Collection,” says Malisa Bryant, Senior Vice President of Global Product. “Sam and Kim’s passion for industrial design empowers organisations and individuals to find their own perfect blend of purpose, performance and expression. The enhancements we’re making to OE1 will provide our customers with even more flexibility to adapt their floorplates as their needs change.”

“When OE1 first launched, it ushered in a new type of unsystematised flexibility for the modern workspace,” says Sam Hecht of Industrial Facility. “Our designs introduced ultra-simple agility to existing furniture types such as the table and the pedestal. Now, with the new OE1 enhancements, we enhance the delight of working anywhere – and in any way.”

The OE1 Workbox simplifying work on the go

Contract customers can now purchase the OE1 Workspace Collection through Herman Miller and MillerKnoll dealers. OE1 Sit-Stand Table and OE1 Workbox will be available to retail customers on the Herman Miller store website in early 2024.
