Asari Chair by Herman Miller, Designed by Naoto Fukasawa

Herman Miller, the Michigan-based office furniture, equipment, and home furnishings company, releases its collaborative project with Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. The Asari Chair by Herman Miller, inspired by organic forms in nature, is a product of the designer’s design ethos and Miller’s technical expertise.

The Asari, which means clam in Japanese, was inspired by organic life in nature. And Fukasawa’s design philosophy is evident in the shape of the chair back, sculptured segments, and the soft flowing lines.

An upholstered and ergonomic work chair, the Asari Chair by Herman Miller is made with ocean-bound plastic. It features crafted Maharam materials, a PostureFit design that adjusts to the lower back’s contours, a contoured seat, a self-adjusting tilt that provides natural movement, and eight unique color flood options.

Configuration options are available that include high-back or mid-back variants, height-adjustable, fixed, or armless configurations, and leather or urethane arm pad options.

The Asari Chair by Herman Miller comes in at prices ranging from $1,395 for the mid-back to $2,095 for the leather high-back model and is available in-store and online from Herman Miller and Design Within Reach.
