We got a great email yesterday saying that Herman Miller’s Envelop desk is now available in retail. Good news for those who (oh wait, everyone today) have to work in front of a desk or computer for a zillion hours a day. “Designed to make sitting in front of a computer for hours comfortable, the Envelop Desk by Herman Miller provides quality design and ergonomic functionality while you work. The Envelop Desk is a good fit for multiple spaces with its clean, trim aesthetic. You can customize the Envelop with a variety of laminates, veneers and finishes to complement any home office. Here are the Envelop’s key features:
- All-Day Comfort – The sliding, flexible support structure envelops your body as you work and encourages movement
- The Eyes Always Win – Based on extensive research and development, the Envelop Desk provides the ideal alignment of a user’s eyes and posture with their screen for optimal ergonomic comfort
- Sit Back – The perfect complement to high performance seating, users can now work in a deep, natural recline
- Earth-friendly – The Envelop is made of recyclable materials and meets Herman Miller’s Design for the Environment Protocol”
This video does a good job of explaining just why it’s cool. I think I might need one.
