    Herman Miller Introduces Cosm at FRONT 2018

    To experience Cosm is—as Studio 7.5 says—to forget gravity. And now people can have that comfort and support no matter how many settings they sit in throughout the day.

    Herman Miller is a recognised innovator in contemporary interior furnishings, solutions for the workplace, education and healthcare environments. For their new Cosm chair the brand worked with Berlin-based Studio 7.5, to create their first task chair with an automatic tilt and the industry’s first suspension armrest. Initially revealed in Milan during Salone Del Mobile 2018, the chair will have its official debut at InDesign's FRONT exhibition August 9-10. Shop the Cosm chair now here..

    FRONT is the event the design industry has been waiting for. It takes the traditional exhibition format and entirely reimagines it for today’s shifting culture of procurement and specification in commercial projects. FRONT addresses new methods of specifying product, and brings together the leading brands that inspire commercial clients. FRONT is guaranteed to deliver the network and knowledge you need.

    As more organizations move toward shared workplaces and workpoints, and people enjoy the freedom to choose the setting based on the work they need to do, one thing hasn’t changed: the need for ergonomic support. Cosm offers exactly this consistency, providing unparalleled comfort and performance, making it not only great for individuals, but also the ultimate shared chair. Cosm rapidly adjusts to whomever is sitting in it using its hidden “engine,” the Auto-Harmonic Tilt™—a culmination of two decades of design research and engineering that further deepened Herman Miller’s understanding of how people sit and work.

    The Auto-Harmonic Tilt instantly and automatically provides continuous support and fluid movement corresponding to the person’s body, posture, and seated position. Other chairs on the market with automatic tilts achieve this simplicity by compromising the experience—relying on systems that cause the body to follow the tilt mechanism, rather than the tilt following the body. Cosm’s Auto-Harmonic Tilt is able to understand how much tension to provide based on the downward force exerted by the person and it provides the same experience for everyone, regardless of body type or seated position.

    Perfecting the tilt mechanism—to give users the seamless experience Studio 7.5 was aiming for—involved years of building and testing full-scale prototypes.

    Studio 7.5 built and tested prototypes in-house using a new 3D-printing technology blending aluminum dust and resin to create mechanically sound components. After countless iterations of 3-D printed prototypes, along with hand sculpting, tweaking, and testing, Studio 7.5 arrived at Cosm’s final form.

    Cosm’s six shades—three new saturated hues and three classic Herman Miller neutrals—provide options for everyone. As interior walls come down and sightlines open up, the dipped-in-color options allow designers to create visually interesting and harmonious solutions for floorplates of all sizes and layouts. The three colors, designed and curated by Laura Guido-Clark, Herman Miller’s Creative Director of Materials Innovation, are intended to “foster great connection, creativity, productivity and ultimately greater prosperity for all."
