International office furniture manufacturer Herman Miller has received the FIRA Ergonomics Excellence Award for its Mirra 2 chair.

The Mirra 2, designed by Studio 7.5 and manufactured by Herman Miller, received the accolade in recognition of its exceptional ergonomic design and was presented by Lord Hoyle of Warrington at the House of Lords in June.

Lillian Antonio, from Herman Miller, commented: “Achieving the FIRA Ergonomics Excellence Award is a recognition of the work that has gone into the design of the Mirra 2. It is acknowledges that our product is at the forefront of office furniture design and an excellent product for our customers.”

Levent Çaglar, FIRA’s chief ergonomist said: “I am pleased to present Herman Miller with FIRA Ergonomics Excellence Award for their Mirra 2 chair. A follow up to the original Mirra chair launched 10 years ago, the design has been refined to provide additional comfort.

“The leaf-spring style of design provides smooth motion and enables the seat to float, suspended above the slim mechanism. The controls are intuitive and enable the chair to be adjusted for a wide range of people.”

The FIRA Ergonomics Excellence Award identifies genuine ergonomic excellence in both domestic and workplace furniture products by clearly distinguishing those that are outstanding from other products in the marketplace.
