Herman Miller’s Cosm Chair and Maharam Textiles Debut At XTRA

Special installations by two Singapore design studios created the setting for the launch of Herman Miller’s Cosm and the addition of Maharam to XTRA’s offerings.

Herman Miller’s Cosm Chair and Maharam Textiles Debut At XTRA

On Wednesday 19 September 2018, XTRA and Herman Miller transformed the XTRA Office showroom at Marina Square for an impressive launch party for the Cosm chair and a select range of Maharam fabrics.

DP Design and Gensler created a variety of settings for Cosm, creatively highlighting various aspects of its design and performance. See more in our gallery:



Cosm, designed by German studio Studio 7.5, eliminates the need for constant adjustments. It automatically adjusts to whomever is sitting in it – directly supporting posture and weight, while providing a balanced recline and personalised comfort. Read more about this ‘chair for everyone’ in our product review here.

Herman Miller Cosm Event Xtra 9

Cosm is Herman Miller’s first task chair with an automatic tilt, which provides continuous support and fluid movement. It’s available in one hue from top to bottom for cohesive design.
