Key Trends

Common Threads

Amongst the immaculate showcase of design, we noted several common threads between industry leaders from the MillerKnoll collective of brands.

Soft, Residential-Inspired Seating
Including several new releases from Herman Miller, Naughtone, DWR, Geiger, and an exciting archival re-release from Knoll.

Increased Flexibility, Usability

From stackables, nestables, moveables, and adjustables – and sometimes all of the above – products to support the autonomy of individuals and teams.

Acoustically-Balanced Space Division
Taking note from return-to-work experiences, purposefully designed (and intentionally divided) spaces to accommodate connectivity and enhance focus.

Bold Colors in Natural Settings
Designers have created visually-engaging spaces by adding deep, yet bold color to oceans of natural woods, stone, and earth tone finishes.
