Flexibility for the Office of the Future Meet the next generation of Ratio, a height-adjustable workstation primed for change.
Ratio returns as our answer to the new normal: distributed work. As work becomes more flexible, the role of the office is shifting. To
stay relevant, the successful workplace of the future needs to be dynamic, consisting of a network of spaces that instantly adapts to
changing visitor numbers and organisational needs. The right furniture lays the groundwork for a business that’s agile. One that’s ready
to respond to anything, no matter how immediate the shift. The right furniture is a furniture that is as flexible as you, and as agile
as your business needs it to be. And it’s here that the next-gen Ratio can make all the difference.
Build your office the way you want it with the help of Ratio. Back and better than ever, this sit-to-stand desking solution is armed with a multitude of options. Now, you can set the foundations for a workspace that suits the needs of your business, and the needs of the individuals using it.
You Asked, We Listened
At Herman Miller, we are committed to creating timeless design that keeps adding value. That’s why we take designs that are already enhancing how you live and work, and we see how we can make them better. We study the latest ergonomic science to better understand how you move as you work. We test prototype after prototype. Plus we ask you how you use our products, and how we can refine them.
When it came to Ratio, we did all of this – and above all, we listened to what you, our customers, had to say. The result is a desk that supports people and businesses through changing needs and changing times. Here is a height-adjustable workstation whose versatility makes it the perfect tool for the modern workspace; at home, or in the office.
Power of Choice
With the next-gen Ratio, you get to choose. Ratio is available with round legs, giving the table a lightweight look ideal for the modern office; or rectangular legs for structured, architectural appeal. The choice is yours. Giving you even more to choose from are Ratio’s new mobility options, guaranteeing smooth transitions between focus work, collaborations and meetings. Castors are available for single desks in both rectangular- and round-leg versions. In multi-desk settings, the round-leg Ratio comes with castors, while the rectangular-leg version comes with gliders. Ratio’s simple, streamlined form also adapts to any configuration. Set it up in rows or unlimited clusters, or position it on its own.
Bringing more privacy to the table are the screen options. Now affixed to the top of the crossbeam for a clean-lined look and efficient support, the new screens are designed for versatility, supporting any workplace configuration. For standalone settings, you can choose to incorporate a screen, or not. For row or clustered settings, the screen moves up and down to deliver additional privacy, and a sense of psychological safety. In back-to-back formations, the screen will remain in a fixed position between the desks.
Work Your Way
Supporting the workplace of the future is furniture that puts the power back in the hands of its users. That’s why you get to choose how you move and when. Ratio’s intuitive one-touch electric controls let you decide, and they shift the desk between positions in an instant. The assigned desk version of Ratio also comes with programmable pre-sets. Save your settings, and you’re good to go. Ratio will adjust with ease to your perfect posture whenever you come back to it.
More Power Where You Need It
Fostering clarity is the clean, uncluttered workspace. To optimise performance, we need simple, seamless and modern furniture that supports clear sight lines and smooth day-to-day operations. As well as introducing a new, lightweight round-legged option, we streamlined the desk's under-structure for ease of use and a cleaner look. Ratio now features our in-house designed umbilical cord, keeping cables out of sight, yet efficiently organised. We also improved cable tray capacity for more power where you need it. The lower cable tray now features an intuitive hinged lid, making access quick and easy. We closed both ends of the upper cable tray, facilitating cable management, and providing a sleek finish.
