The first Nesting Chair for the brand allows for easy space reconfiguration for different uses
Increasingly in a workplace there are spaces which are required to fulfil a variety of uses, from group gatherings and learning activities to team and events spaces. The need for advanced functionality, and effortless reconfiguration by the user, was the driving force behind MillerKnoll’s brief for the first nesting chair.
With its refreshing aesthetic, Fuld is a standout among nesting chairs – enabling organisations to reconfigure space without sacrificing style. Available in dipped-in-colour options consisting of the seat, seat-back and legs in one hue and dual-colour combinations, Fuld elevates the experience of a nesting chair.
Fuld eschews the typical X shape of a nesting chair for a streamlined inverted Y with tubular arms
The crisp organic form of the Fuld chair is not realised through a typical X frame but instead comes to life through unique lines which form a Y base. This form not only elevates the aesthetic of the chair but importantly allows the chairs to ‘nest’ together when not in use which saves on space. The reimagined seating mainstay enlivens any space, even when stored in the open.
Fuld expands Herman Miller’s portfolio of seating suitable for specification in projects such as forum spaces and within the education sector, sitting in the portfolio alongside designs including Caper; a family of agile, stylish seating which includes multipurpose and stacking chairs and stools. Fuld shares a carefully developed colour palette with designs including Cosm, Zeph and Pronta, creating a beautifully cohesive interior and creating a family dynamic across multiple product lines.
“We’re excited to welcome Stefan Diez to the Herman Miller portfolio after his work for the wider MillerKnoll collective,” says Malisa Bryant, Senior Vice President of Global Product, “Diez prioritises sustainability and innovation within his designs which have long been core values for Herman Miller.”
Fuld’s back has a touch of elasticity, which keeps you comfortable as you shift
A long-standing commitment to the environment drove Diez’s design of Fuld. With its minimalistic design and pioneering one-piece construction, where the back rest, arms and back legs are one continuous piece, the chair comprises just two materials for easy recycling at the end of its lifecycle. An optional 3D Knit textile seat is also available that is made from 50 per cent post-consumer recycled content, and because it’s knitted to the chair’s exact dimensions, there’s no fabric waste.
“I am thrilled to have designed the first nesting chair for Herman Miller,” says Stefan 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.
The chair was previewed during MillerKnoll Design Days where it was announced as a MetropolisLikes Award Winner. It will be available to contract customers for purchase through Herman Miller and MillerKnoll dealers. Visit the Herman Miller website for additional details.
