The Fuld Nesting Chair from Herman Miller elevates the experience of a nesting chair while enabling flexible configurations for workspaces.
October 3rd, 2023
In today’s hybrid work landscape, the demands for a high-quality, agile workplace are greater than ever. Increasingly, to adapt to evolving organisational needs, work environments need spaces that can fulfil a variety of uses, from breakout sessions to social celebrations to corporate training and educational events.
The need for functionality and adaptability is encapsulated by the classic nesting chair design, which has become a staple in offices around the world. Herman Miller takes this concept a step further with its new Fuld Nesting Chair, designed in collaboration with Stefan Diez.
The first nesting chair from the brand, Fuld stands out from other nesting chairs thanks to its updated design, which enables organisations to reconfigure space without sacrificing style. It eschews the typical X shape of a nesting chair for a streamlined inverted Y with tubular arms. A small amount of elasticity in the back helps to keep you comfortable as you move.
Fuld is available in dipped-in-colour options consisting of the seat, seat-back and legs in one hue and dual-colour combinations. This wide spectrum of colour choice, alongside the chair’s unique lines and crisp organic form, takes the experience of the nesting chair to a new level.
“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.”
Diez’s design of Fuld was motivated by a long-standing commitment to the environment. The chair’s minimalist design and ground-breaking one-piece construction, in which the back rest, arms, and back legs are all one continuous piece, allow for easy recycling at the end of its useful life. There is also an optional 3D Knit textile seat that is made of 50% post-consumer recycled content and knitted to the exact measurements of the chair, eliminating any 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.”
Herman Miller has spent the last century being led by a dedication to creating designs that solve problems and inspire the best in people. Along the way, Herman Miller has manufactured some of the world’s most iconic pieces, while forging critical relationships with visionary designers and numerous groundbreaking studios.
Another modern classic, Fuld broadens Herman Miller’s selection of seating that can be specified for projects like offices, forum spaces and in the education industry. The chair was previewed during MillerKnoll Design Days where it was announced as a MetropolisLikes Award Winner.
Fuld will be available to contract customers for purchase through Herman Miller and MillerKnoll dealers. For more information, visit the Fuld Nesting Chair product page on the Herman Miller Website.
