My Studio Environments
Addressing the needs of the growing class of "knowledge workers" — that's the mission of Herman Miller's newest system that gives back an office door and organizes this worker's smaller square footage into activity zones that match mental processes.
Vanishing Point. With curved and open corners, translucent materials, and floating walls, the Vanishing Point design of My Studio Environments™ makes a space feel larger and more inviting, creating a sense of freedom and comfort.
About Face. My Studio's cockpit-shaped primary surface gives the worker the option of facing outbound or toward the middle, as well as inbound. Many workers feel more comfortable facing outward so they don't have their backs to the office doorway. Facing outward can create a feeling of security as well as connection with the environment outside the workstation.
Zone Logic. The elements of a My Studio office are designed to wrap around the person so that the tools and materials they use most are within easy reach. Four zones surrounding the person support different aspects of the knowledge-work process (the Create Zone, the Display Zone, the Organize Zone, and the Filter Zone). My Studio components are designed specifically for each zone.
Permeable Privacy. My Studio has translucent glass shutters that work like sliding windows, giving workers control over their level of privacy. Opening the shutters makes the office feel larger and lets people collaborate with neighbors. Closing the shutters and door creates a private office for solitary work.
