Herman Miller Goetz Sofa
designed by Mark Goetz


Herman Miller Goetz Sofa At A Glance:
The traditional sofa is a wooden frame covered with padding and upholstery. Designer Mark Goetz turned that tradition inside out, wrapping his sofa in a striking molded wood veneer shell to create both a structural frame and a dramatic profile. The Herman Miller Goetz Sofa's shell is filled with 7" thick padding and leather upholstery, to create a seat pocket specially designed to provide a comfortable seated position as well as enough space to stretch out and take a nap.

What's To Like:
You'll love the spacious resting place provided. The Goetz Sofa is a true napping sofa - not just one that has "enough room." Its whole design is aimed at making you extremely comfortable whether you're sitting or lying down. That, and the sofa's sumptuous leather and fine veneer are just the visual icing on the cake.

What's Not to Like:
Well, it goes without saying that the Goetz Sofa is one of the more expensive sofas you could buy - so you do have other options. But, you get what you pay for; this sofa oozes comfort and luxurious style. We promise you won't feel let down when you sit on it in your very own living room for the first time.

The Bottom Line:
By using common materials and processes in innovative ways, designer Mark Goetz achieves a crisp, clean aesthetic for his remarkable sofa. The Goetz Sofa provides supportive comfort, and complements contemporary, informal lifestyles while echoing Herman Miller's classic heritage.

Details:

  • Overall: 32" h x 84" w x 31" d
  • Seat height: 17.5"
  • Exterior plywood frame with your choice of veneer
  • 7" thick leather-upholstered foam cushions
  • Aluminum legs


Leather Options:

    • Stock Leather
      Chromium free and from Austria this stock Herman Miller leather is a winner for most. With a matte, soft feel this is the most popular leather used on Herman Miller upholstered items.

    • Open Line Leather
      Austrian by birth, yours by choice. Open Line leather is closest to the stock Herman Miller leathers but available in a wider array of colors.

    • Dream Cow Leather
      With a gentle calfskin grain (it's not calfskin though, its European full grain aniline dyed cowhide), this leather is soft and comes in many great colors to accent your decor. This is a leather of great versatility, perfect when Royal Hide is out of budget, but where the look is wanted.

    • Metallic Dream Cow Leather
      A gentle calfskin grain (again, not calfskin but European full grain aniline dyed cowhide), infused with metals and soft shine, on cowhide for huge versatility. Updated, offbeat, moody colors.

    • All Grain Leather
      Not too big - not too small - just "All Grain". Color and quality together wedding grain and color, always with a feeling of luxury. European full grain aniline dyed cowhide powered by Crypton, "All Grain" becomes an easy choice for high traffic areas and commercial offices.

  • Royal Hide Leather
    This versatile leather is the most beautiful of its kind. The color range is huge, reflecting its broad applicability. It will develop a rich patina over time, making it a great heirloom, eliminating the need for reupholstery. A European full grain aniline dyed cowhide leather with no limits - sky, earth, sea.

The Herman Miller Goetz Sofa is also known by the following manufacturer Item Numbers: GS100, GS100AV, GS100OU, GS100CX, GS100EN, GS100V3.

Materials & Measurements

Goetz Sofa DimensionsMaterials:
Traditional sofa construction consists of a wooden frame with padding and upholstery applied over it. Mark Goetz turned that tradition inside out with this sofa. Its molded veneer shell is clearly visible as both aesthetic element and structural frame.

To achieve this look, Goetz incorporated an intricate miter that eliminates all but one seam where several planes intersect. Veneers wrap around the sofa's sides and back for a dramatic profile. 7" thick cushions and a seat depth that gives correct ergonomic support provide comfort. The result is a sofa appropriate for today's lifestyles that echoes Herman Miller's classic heritage.

Herman Miller Leather Collections

Standard Leather
Chromium free and in stock at Herman Miller, standard leather is a winner for most. Direct from Austria with a matte, soft feel, this is the most popular leather used on Herman Miller upholstered items. It has a faint embossed grain pattern and little shine.

Open Line Leather
This Austrian leather is essentially the same as the standard leather, but is available in a wider array of colors. It also has a light embossed grain and is matte in finish.

Dream Cow Leather
A gentle European full grain aniline-dyed cowhide with a calfskin feel, this leather is soft and comes in many great colors to accent your decor. Dream cow is very popular, it has a natural grain and medium shine and is similar to Royal Hide without the price.

Metallic Dream Cow Leather
Metallic is right. This leather is infused with metals and soft shine, on cowhide for huge versatility. Features offbeat, moody colors with a shimmer to them.

All Grain Leather
European full grain aniline-dyed cowhide, All Grain is the easy choice for high-traffic areas with its thicker, more durable finish. It has a high shine with a very thick, grainy feel.

Royal Hide Leather
This versatile leather is the most beautiful of its kind. Offers a huge color range. It will develop a rich patina over time, making it a great heirloom and eliminating the need for reupholstery. Medium grain and medium shine.

Dimensions:
Overall: 32" h x 84" w x 31" d
Seat height: 17.5"

Practical details. A durable polyurethane finish protects veneers; zippered covers on all cushions can be easily removed for cleaning.

Mark GoetzMark Goetz
People feel close to their furniture. They get attached. "So my goal is to design furniture that fits into someone's life," Mark Goetz says. "I want even office furniture to feel as personal as any object someone has at home." Of course, furniture must solve a problem, Goetz says, but that's only half of the designer's mission. "You could live with a good solution and not really like it. Objects should be loved and wanted as well as provide a solution."

Goetz has been designing loved and wanted objects since 1986, after his graduation from the Pratt Institute in New York City. In 1988, he founded TZ Design in New York and has created children's products for Marimekko, backpacks and totebags for Le Sportsac, table top items for Crate & Barrel, and crystal for Steuben. He also has designed a variety of products for the contract furniture industry, including tables, casegoods, and more than 60 chairs. His pieces furnish the corporate headquarters of the Chicago Bulls, the Kennedy Center in Washington, and the president's office at Harvard University.


Design Story

Molded plywood carries an immediate association with classic Herman Miller designs, and Mark Goetz, principal of TZ Design in New York City, skillfully and creatively incorporates this material in his sofa design. While traditional construction consists of a wooden frame with padding and upholstery applied over it, the Goetz sofa turns tradition inside out, since its plywood shell is clearly visible as both an aesthetic element and a structural frame.

The sofa's practicality extends to one of its most important features - comfort. Goetz conducted his own research and consulted with other experts to arrive at a seat depth that gives ergonomic support as well as room to lie down.

Very well made, but odd dimensions

By 

from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Herman Miller Goetz Sofa:

This sofa is very attractive, and of course very well made. But the actual seat is unfortunately shallow. Not only is it not very loungy, when I just sit on it casually I feel like I'm falling off the front of it. Not suitable for a casual space, more for a formal space where people won't be sitting for a very long time. In my living room, I wind up sitting on the floor instead.

Elegant and incredibly solid

Comments about Herman Miller Goetz Sofa:

We use this sofa in our home and it's understated beauty can not be overstated. It compliments the Eames lounge and ottoman perfectly. One amazing aspect is how comfortable it is for being such a minimalist design. The Goetz is designed in a manner that surrounds the occupants and creates a cozy nook, (Very inviting)

The construction is such that it feels like it is carved from a single piece of wood with no flex in the frame or squeaks. (Very important!)

I consider this a forever sofa and the removable cushions will make replacing the foam and upholstery very easy, if not inexpensive.

A possible con for some is that while it is a full size sofa, the design makes it appear smaller than it actually is. I prefer this style because it doesn't overwhelm the room but some may not.

    What sort of ECO or LEED characteristics does this sofa have if any? And is any part of it treated with any flame retardants? formaldehyde?

      A:

      There are no LEED credits for the Goetz Sofa. It is not treated with any flame retardants. The frame is made with plywood with a wood veneer so there are glues used to hold all that together. Formaldehyde is present in any wood product.
