“Herman Miller works with the most innovative designers and thinkers in the world to create products and solve problems. Our approach for integrating furnishings and technology into high-performing work settings is no different,” said Greg Bylsma, President of the North American Contract Market. “Our research gives us a deep understanding of how people work and the tools and furnishings they need to do that work. By bringing together the best minds in the tech-services industry, our dealers can deliver outcomes that avoid the frictions of the traditional process.”

With our partners, we have streamlined the process of creating, specifying, and deploying integrated solutions to help customers and their design partners save time and money.

Our partners include:

Whitlock – For US customers, Herman Miller works with Whitlock to offer full lifecycle video and media collaboration services. The partnership ensures an attractive, comprehensive setting design that provides an uncomplicated and well integrated audio, video, and team working experience with an option for 24/7 support.

The environments we create are places where people feel more connected to each other and to the work they are sharing.

Herman Miller’s Living Office design framework and Crestron’s technology solutions shape workplaces that ignite people’s potential.

Living Office Settings is another way Herman Miller is introducing Workplace Services into its contract business offer as part of a toolkit to improve all aspects of the work environment. Whether an organization is aiming to enact a cultural shift, increase efficiency, or scale technology for people and their work, Herman Miller’s team of specialists will help shape a workplace where the people propel organizational growth.

Clients in North America can leverage Herman Miller’s Workplace Services capabilities to gain settings that help better position organizations and their people for success. These results include places where furnishings, tools, and technology align with the needs and daily activities of the workforce, while simultaneously addressing the organization’s real estate and financial goals. With this seamless experience, people are free to think, create, and connect in meaningful ways.

“We are transitioning from the Era of Information to the Era of Ideas,” states Julian Phillips, Whitlock EVP. “Our customers are looking for modern, integrated workplace solutions which enable them to unlock the potential of their people to deliver both creativity and new levels of productivity. This partnership with Herman Miller sets an example and enables true collaboration for our customers.”
