At A Glance:
The Wireframe Chair, with its external frame and removable cushions, is a nod to the common difficulties people tend to have with pieces of upholstered furniture. It seeks to remove those difficulties right at the outset, rather than one by one. The Herman Miller Wireframe Chair's frame is formed from strong steel wire - long in use for furniture like the Eames Molded Plastic Chairs, and now adapted to serve as a stable platform for this lounge chair.
What's to Like:
- Each cushion can be independently removed, which makes cleaning a snap. Just remove and vacuum - and if the pillows need heavier treatment, you can just take them to be dry-cleaned. That's a lot easier than trying to lug a chair to the dry cleaners.
- The Wireframe Chair comes with one lumbar pillow and one throw pillow. That's a lot of included comfort.
- The chair features Herman Miller's Super-Seat suspension technology, which provides comfort and support across the chair's width. No matter how you're seated, your pressure will be distributed evenly.
- Last, but not least - the Wireframe Chair is very light - both visually and physically. Most of us have gone through the experience of trying to move a big, heavy chair up stairs or through a tight door frame. Well, just take the cushions out and move frame and cushions independent from one another. You probably won't need to measure your stairwell ever again.
The Herman Miller Wireframe Chair incorporates both old and new technologies to come up with a completely new way of making a lounge chair. It's comfortable, lightweight, and easy to live with. And isn't that the point?

Take one look at the Wireframe Series, and it makes you want to have a seat and stay a while. And with such a rigid support structure on the outside, it's no wonder that the cushions look so inviting. They're not built around an immovable interior frame, so they're able to be softer and more open to different postures without being disfigured by excess padding.
Wire has been a staple of the Herman Miller design diet for many decades, beginning with the Eames' Wire Chair and continuing through the Molded Plastic and Molded Plywood families. The Wireframe Series is a refreshing update of the material.
The designers drew inspiration from how they use a sofa - and how they believe people are living today. The result has a lightness in visual form and actual fact. "We wanted something that was visually light, that spoke of the contemporary conditions of moving a sofa from one position to another," said Hecht. From a consideration of lightness "grew the idea of a wired frame that contains its cushions in a manner that feels comfortable to the eye as well as the body."
