For over 50 years, Herman Miller has designed systems for world-class working environments.
Layout Studio benefits from our wealth of knowledge and skill, from producing the revolutionary Action Office system in 1968 to the award-winning Abak Environments in 2004. Learning something from every product we develop keeps us at the forefront of workspace design.Working Beautifully:
Helping your business, whatever your size, wherever your location. We do this through design, by solving problems for people. The challenge of supporting many different working styles across cultures and countries, with form and function working beautifully together, gave rise to Layout Studio. It is an adaptable, contemporary office system made for the world.Made Versatile:
People want choice and variety in how and where they work, and in the activities they undertake. Patterns in working styles change with technological and social trends and the behaviours they create. Layout Studio embodies the versatility these realities demand. A system of furnishings, it functions comfortably in all areas, from open-plan environments to private spaces, wherever you are, whatever your working style and whatever the task.Individual Focus:
Even with the collaboration that is so much a part of working today, there remains the need for individual focus. Layout Studio has the flexibility for personal expression and comfort and the focused attention that work often requires. Desks can be tailored to different shapes and sizes. Leg heights are adjustable and work surfaces can adapt to support technological needs.
The ability to create interiors with Layout Studio that support group work is as much due to what you don’t see as to what you do. Intelligence designed and engineered into each element, that works to perfection, permits a flexibility of expression. Arrangements that foster collaboration give people a place to connect with others for productive work.
When people feel connected – to each other and their organisation – they become deeply engaged contributors. In recognising the need for connecting people across the globe, we designed Layout Studio to allow local interpretations in the context of a cohesive global solution. Available across six continents, it brings harmony to workplaces, wherever they're located.
Developing a system that’s quicker to install, reconfigure and relocate requires serious thinking. Our team of engineers had to overcome significant complexities to create a simple design using fewer components; the end result reduces build time, material and cost. And we’ve made sure disassembly is easy so the system can be effectively reused.
For our customers, responsible business practices are a given. It’s why every component in Layout Studio has been carefully engineered to make the manufacturing process as safe and repeatable as possible. Materials can be sourced locally and manufacture can take place nearer the final destination, which reduces shipping and overall environmental impact. At the end of the product’s life, it is easy to disassemble for reuse or recycling.
