You may remember from 2021 the design firm SLAB, which took out the winning title in the inaugural Herman Miller Work, Redefined – The Design Challenge.

It won with its proposition for a Kit Of Pods for the Social Office – a 3-D printed off-the-shelf product: a solution and a strategy to put people at the centre of the new socially-driven workplace.

As design challenge juror, Martijn Joosten of Veldhoen + Company noted: “SLAB had an innovative approach by creating different areas to support the various activities that people do when coming into the workplace, while maintaining a cohesive working environment.”

Well, SLAB are about to take off on their award-winning trip to Michigan, US, where the studio will visit Herman Miller’s global home, which has recently become MillerKnoll’s headquarters.

The multi-disciplinary studio is set to touch down in America on 3 October and for three days, they’ll be experiencing the iconic sites and sights that have come to define Herman Miller’s 122-year history.

They’re also booked to the gills with meet-ups, with the design visionaries who influence Herman Miller’s design legacy today.
