An annual highlight on the design calendar, the Herman Miller Liveable Office Awards are open for another year, and with it your chance to secure a USD $5,000 cash prize and a trip to New York City!
November 25th, 2017
The goal of the Herman Miller Liveable Office competition is simple – to raise awareness and promote the importance of good workspace design. The majority of us spend a huge portion of our waking lives inside modern offices and workspaces, and for Herman Miller, this is a big deal. Why should we settle for less than inspired design in the spaces we work, create and live?
From the Awards’ first iteration in 2013, Herman Miller has captured the imagination of the commercial sector’s most active designers throughout the Asia Pacific region, and in 2017 and 2018, that’s set to continue. The awards are open now, and entries can be submitted until February 15th, 2018. Following this, a panel independent of judges will shortlist entries before the big reveal of the winners in March 2018.
The categories for 2017-2018…
Commercial Business – Workspace Design Award – With the winner receiving 5,000 USD cash plus tickets for 4 to be flown out and visit the Herman Miller Flagship Store in New York.
Co-working and Collaborative Space Award – With the winner receiving 4,000 USD cash, plus tickets and flights for two to visit the New York Herman Miller Flagship Store
Best Tech Award – With the winner receiving 10 subscription licenses for Herman Miller Living Office Passport Service for a whole year.
People’s Choice Award – With the winner receiving furniture sponsorship to refresh and optimise the workspace in a prize worth USD 5,000.
“We find meaning and fulfilment in work,” says Kartik Shethia, Vice President, Herman Miller Asia Pacific “Working is about living your passion, and the workspace should empower everyone to be active contributors.”
The Liveable Office Awards are always a bright spot in the year of design – so if you think your design has what it takes, check out full submission details here! But be quick, you’ve only got until February 15, 2018.
