Herman Miller: Striad

June 10, 2016

The Striad lounge chair and corresponding ottoman, designed by Jehs+Laub, take cues from the construction of a ski boot. The chair was created in layers: The rigid outer shell provides stability and support, while a softer inner shell, layered with individually upholstered cushions, is flexible. In the low- and mid-back versions, Striad works well for casual collaboration, while the high-back option offers visual privacy for more focused work or rest.
