Herman Miller and Nemschoff Step in the Right Direction

Manufacturing giant Herman Miller and healthcare furnishings subsidiary Nemschoff continue to make great strides in the venue with Steps, a modular seating solution designed to take the edge off—as it were—of the sometimes harsh appearance of the healthcare environment.

Nemschoff’s Steps Features Modular Loungers in a Variety of Profiles

Nemschoff calls steps a “transitional seating solution.” Along with designer Brian Kane of Kane Design Studio, the manufacturer envisioned Steps as a subtly undulating antidote to the severe lines one often encounters in hospitals and doctor’s offices.

Steps easily achieves the serpentining silhouette that Kane was after. The collection’s varied back heights and curved forms enable designers to concoct swooping schemes of differing lengths and depths, “helping transform the interior into a soothing, welcoming space… providing a sense of peace, serenity, and possibility to patients and their visitors.”

The individual units of Steps each offer comfy spring seat construction, metal legs, upholstered arm caps, and 1 and ¼” adjustable glides. Options include integrated tables with power modules and choice of wood or urethane arm caps.
