Herman Miller Lighting
Lighting is an element of design that often goes overlooked, however, it’s also an element that provides maximum impact. It sets the ambiance and completes the space. It can hide imperfections, guide the eye to highlight specific features, and influence mood, making space feel warmer and more inviting. It can change the perception of color, from walls to furniture, making certain tones appear sharper or more relaxed. And it might be the missing piece in creating a space that feels like home.
From pendants to task lighting, Herman Miller has a vast range of pieces to suit every context. We’re proud to be an authorized retailer.
From the setting of a home office, intended to increase focus, to the muted vibes of a living space, which must be versatile enough to meet the occasion where it is, it’s crucial to have the right lighting to bring it all together. It can influence your mood, making space feel warmer and more inviting. It can change the perception of color, from walls to furniture.
When you’re selecting lighting for a specific space, you’ll want to consider a multitude of existing factors. What degree of natural light does the room receive? What function does your space serve? How do you want this space to make you feel? Cozy and relaxed, or productive and focused?
If you’re looking to outfit an office space, whether that be in the workspace or at home (anywhere where focus is required), you’ll likely want to look at task lighting, which provides a concentrated stream of illumination to ensure eyes can easily digest what’s in front of you. The right lighting can actually increase your ability to focus and produce, helping to keep your mind clear of distraction. Sometimes, a light that produces a glare can actually distract you from being able to see your screen or other documents—that’s why Herman Miller produces anti-glare and LED-integrated lighting. Excessive backlighting can also interrupt your day-to-day, which is why it’s key to have a solution custom-catered to you.
For a space like a living room or bedroom, you’ll want more diffuse lighting, which helps create an even glow throughout a space, contributing to a softer setting that feels inviting and comfortable. Over a dining room or island, or another fixture underneath which people gather, you’ll want to have pendant lighting, which encourages conversation and provides a well-lit environment for interaction.
Herman Miller is known for human-centered design, which means people are always their first consideration. With function and how humans will interact with every piece top of mind, they aim to create lighting that can coexist in your home for decades, even as other fixtures and furniture are swapped out over time. Versatile enough to work in harmony with disparate elements, but bold enough to make a statement of class and sophistication on its own.
