Herman Miller Striad Lounge and Ottoman
Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub, 2016
Inspired by the construction of high-performance ski boots, Stuttgart-based designers Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub designed the Striad Lounge Chair and Ottoman in layers to deliver a premium experience of comfort. The outermost layer, a rigid shell, is merged with an inner shell constructed of a natural fiber composite material, which is then fully upholstered. Individually upholstered dual-density foam cushions form the third layer, resulting in an optimal combination of firm support and supple, pliable comfort.
Offered in low, mid, or high-back versions, each with a choice of a four-star auto-return base or fixed four-leg wire base—as well as several finish and upholstery options—Striad can be outfitted appropriately for a multitude of spaces.
