Marc Fong, the head of research,
design and development for Herman
Miller International, discusses workplace
trends and the latest desking system
to make waves.
What are the worldwide tre nds
eme rging for workplaces in terms
The workplace is on a journey towards a perfect
juxtapose of living and dining room, cafe or bistro, transit
and waiting lounge, public library, town square, amphitheatre, science labs,
wellness centres and secluded corners.
How can furniture solutions facilitate the evolvi ng nature of work?
Furniture will need to recognise the user and adapt to his/her needs in
delightfully int uitive ways, with help fro m techn ology integrated to f ur nitur e.
Tell us what’s innovative about the new Herman Miller desking system,
and how it reflects these trends.
At Herman Miller, we do not lose sleep over trends. We are more concerned
around understanding problems in the workplace journey and how we can
problem-solve for our customers, and often that does make a new trend.
What are some of the tools of your trade that you cannot do without?
Where tools are co ncer ned, it would be my commu nic ation devices – my
laptop, mobile phone, headphon es, and Cloud-based platfo rms to share
and view large files with several people at on e time. People are my stro ngest
asset – I’m grateful to have two capable members of my team looking after the
evo lving aspec ts of design and pro du ct en gineering excellen ce respectively.
