Work. Everywhere. Anywhere.
Designed for the Asia Pacific market, Arras was created by the Herman Miller Asia Research and Development group. In extensive user-needs reviews conducted in Tokyo, Sydney and every other major city in the Asia Pacific region, conversations with customers, architects and designers helped us to reinvent the workplace experience.
A benchmark solution
Our exceptional bench solution is based on 5 key requirements:
1. Minimal under-structure
2. Privacy on demand
3. Democratic power access
4. Accessible accessories
5. User-needs driven storage solutions
Arras promises a free and easy solution: you should be able to sit anywhere and at any time; your decision informed by work schedule, available space, the nature of your task, relationships with others and of course, personal preference.
De-materialisation is one of the primary development criteria that informs our careful material selection. It is our responsibility as product designers to minimise the materials and processes we use in achieving our objective, in order to lower the carbon footprint of the products we create.
Easy disassembly for end-of-life management
Every component in Arras can be easily disassembled for end of life management and no components are chemically bonded. Arras does not use of PVC or any other toxic material, has verifiable recycled content exceeding 50% by weight, and is BIFMA X7.1 certified as a low emission product that meets indoor air quality standards.
Arras delivers an imaginative and gorgeous palette of photogenic colours and finishes accommodating almost every taste.
Some will gravitate to the sportswear-inspired yellow against masculine grey, others to a fabulous kaleidoscope of pink, turquoise and canopy green, and others again may insist on the pure and natural textures of bamboo set against crisp white. With fifteen fabulous colours, we can bring a smile back into the workplace.
Arras™ is designed for durability and ease of churn, carrying our comprehensive Herman Miller 12-year, 3-shift warranty.
