Open-plan office furniture to be celebrated

By Paperstone on January 3, 2008 in Office Furniture

Four decades of open-plan office furniture systems are being honoured by Herman Miller at February’s Office Exhibition in Dubai.

Originally designed by Robert Propst in the 1960s, Action Office was the groundbreaking design that launched a thousand ranges and revolutionised the layout of modern offices worldwide.

Action Office furniture was hailed as the Most Significant Design since 1960 at the World Design Congress in 1985.

The developed and modernised versions of the original designs are still sold by Herman Miller and the company claims there is still a continuing demand for the office furniture brand.

Manager for Middle East and Africa at Herman Miller Gaby Koudsi said: "This year’s show is very exciting, in addition to launching a number of new product ranges, we will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of the father of systems furniture, Action Office."

The office furniture exhibition is on from February 4th to 6th.

Herman Miller’s UK VillageGreen base in Chippenham has been awarded the company’s 12th Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building rating system award.

It is the seventh company facility to achieve the gold status, according to the company.
