Public Office Landscape by Herman Miller
Public transforms every part of the office—including individual desks—into places for collaboration. It’s the first office system to support casual work and to provide comfort at the desk, in circulation spaces, and in group areas—all within a consistent design vocabulary. Visually uniform and modular surfaces, storage, and seating can be configured into a broad range of settings that encourage fluid transitions between collaborative and focused work.
Public was designed to support fluid interactions and spontaneous conversations across the entire landscape, keeping the office in a state of flow, where people are engaged, focused, and able to move freely between collaborative and individual modes of work.
With a modular kit of parts, Public enables people to work how and where they want. Casual group areas become destinations for brainstorming, teamwork, presentations, and meetings. Individual workspaces facilitate sharing and interaction, or productivity and privacy.
Public elements can be arranged into configurations that express culture and foster belonging—and that can evolve as needs change. Layers of color and material create visual consistency and enhance the flow of movement from individual to group activities, and from private to shared spaces.
Public’s highly versatile elements can be reconfigured as your organization grows and evolves, eliminating the need to acquire a new system and dispose of the old. This makes good sense for both the environment and your bottom line.
Public’s carefully considered sustainable design uses the least possible materials, including 100 percent recyclable steel components. The Social Chair’s seat, made from expanded polypropylene, is lightweight, highly recyclable, and comprised of a minimal amount of foam.
Together, these elements warrant Public’s certification by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) for sustainable forestry practices. The system has also received the GREENGUARD Gold standard for indoor air quality.
