In origami, it’s the folding that renders the slender strong and aesthetically pleasing. Herman Miller used the same approach when designing Optimis. Laser-cut from a single sheet of metal, pieces are bent and folded together into a unique—and uniquely strong—desk. The process requires less material and less energy than traditional methods, making Optimis as easy on the environment as it is on the eyes.
Optimis is easier on the environment in another way, as well. It was designed to live a long and varied life within an organization. A simple base and the same, small group of components can be used to create a variety of desks and tables, from benching to 90-degree applications.
As Charles Eames once said, details make the design. Optimis’s raised toolbar has a linear, floating form inspired by the Japanese torii, angular gates at the entrance of Shinto shrines. It keeps the desktop free for work in process and supports accessories like a whiteboard, monitor arm, and Cloud storage box. Folded-paper shelves, trays, box files, and note stands snap onto the toolbar to keep papers, books, and pens out of the way but close at hand. Whimsical paper birds and trees also fit onto the toolbar, providing variety for the eye and inspiration for the mind.
The Optimis Desking System is available in a variety of configurations and finishes, please enquire for more information.
