Worker Health & Safety
Herman Miller systems furniture is manufactured in the U.S. This employer claims that it takes workplace OSHA standards seriously and this is reflected in their products. Ethospace is certified by GREENGUARD® as a low VOC emitting product. This means it won’t negatively impact the indoor air quality in your office. Autophoretic coating is used on the steel wall frames. Wood composite work surfaces are powder coated with a polyester based finish to prevent off gassing.
Although this collection was first introduced in 1985, you can still build on an original Ethospace installation using the latest components. The frame and tile system lets you update the look and feel of your office space with minimal disruption.
Incorporate 120 and 135 degree angles to create modern honeycomb and collaborative workspaces alongside traditional cubicles. Ultra-high cabling capacity and off module design for add-on components guarantee that your Herman Miller systems furniture can keep up with any changes you want to make.
