Fabricwood for Herman Miller

Inspired by the design experiments in Herman Miller’s chairs, this project is the first of its kind, a tensile plywood membrane structure that envelops the the retail space for Herman Miller.

The Herman Miller shop-in-shop is a fabric-like surface that appears to be casually pulled across the entire 8-metre volume. The rippling on the surface increased the
“softness” the plywood making it appear to be stagnant in the wind. The circular cut-outs allowing for tolerance on the surface, along with the cable ties and rivets are signature of this material system expressing its intuitive mechanical workings.
