Embody Will Move You

What do we do every day? We sit. We sit in the office and at home. Staring at our computer screens moving nothing but our fingers. We get stiff and tired. Because sitting is bad for you. Embody is good for you. An agile chair that keeps your body and brain limber all day. Designed specifically for people who work for hours at computers, Embody is the first work chair that benefits both mind and body.

Embody's function is part of its aesthetic. From the back, you see the technology; from the front, you see organic shapes and curves. Embody's textiles  add warmth, more like a skin than a covering. By design the textiles are meant to enhance, not cover up this innovative chair. The fabrication has "loft" for a cushy feel and to allow light and air pass through keeping you cool. Colors pair with two frame colors and three base colors to simplify choice and appeal to universal tastes. See the form, feel the function.

With new tilt technology, Embody's rotation points within the seat and back encourage the body to move naturally into the most positive seated postures. The back is "alive," adapting to the shape and movement of your spine; it automatically adjusts to your shifting positions and supports you through the full range of working postures. Because movement promotes blood and oxygen flow, Embody keeps the brain more focused and functional. Embody will move you.

Instinctive Back - Inspired by the human spine, the back is alive with the backrest and Backfit™ adjustment. It adapts to the unique curvature and movement of your spine and lets your move freely and naturally.

Pixelated Support Technology™ - The Pixelated Support Technology™ creates dynamic seat and back surfaces that automatically conform to movement and evenly distribute weight.

Cool, Airy Fabric Options
- The textile is the “skin” to Embody’s exoskeletal spine-like form. It breathes and cushions the sitter. The palette features a selection of warm and cool neutrals as well as rich saturated colors.


Carbon footprint? From a baby shoe. The facility in which Embody chairs are made produces about one trash can of landfill waste a month, 77 pounds. None of that waste is hazardous. The facility uses nothing but renewable energy. Made of 42% recycled content, the Embody chair contains no PVCs; at the end of its lifecycle, 95% of Embody can be recycled.

The Embody chair adheres to the McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC) Cradle to Cradle protocol and supports Herman Miller's commitment to the environment. Embody is MBDC Cradle to Cradle Silver certified and GREENGUARD certified, and it can provide credits for LEED certification.
