Learning from the design processes of Herman Miller work chairs, which combine formal, structural, and material innovation based on the research of ergonomics to create a surface that molds comfortably to the human body, we developed a “skin” for the Herman Miller shop-in-shop.
This “skin” molded to the XTRA showroom, to which was its host, resulted in the Herman Miller shop-in-shop expressed as a porous envelope forming an independent entity, allowing for visual links while maintaining the identities of both Herman Miller and XTRA brands.
Just as the Herman Miller work chairs have been designed to adapt to our postures and movements, the “skin” was molded to adapt to existing structures and customer movement patterns.
The continuous surfaces forming the façade, walls, ceiling, and entrances invite customers into the store, guiding them through the shopping experience.
