These Task Chairs by Herman Miller and Studio 7.5 Are Anything But Boring
A task chair that’s aesthetically pleasing is a must as we settle into working in both home and office environments. Enter juggernaut Herman Miller, part of the MillerKnoll collective, which teamed up with Studio 7.5 for Zeph, a perch that combines a cheery mid-mod aesthetic with research-backed ergonomics.
Through 3-D printing prototypes, the one-piece plastic shell, a nod to the classic Eames shell chair, is less rigid than its inspiration. It glides and tilts back with the body’s lean, thanks to a springy under-seat mechanism that uses the sitter’s pivot points to create the right counterbalance.
And any hue from a “crayon box” of colors, Studio 7.5 notes, can be applied to the entire frame down to the casters. For homespun charm, a nubby digitally knit seat pad or full shell cover snuggles on like a tea cozy.
