Living Office by Herman Miller

Living Office is a more natural and desirable workplace that fosters greater connection, creativity, productivity, and, ultimately, greater prosperity for all.

Why Living Office?

Work has changed. Most offices haven’t.

Tomorrow’s offices need to attract, nurture, enable, and retain the talent that will drive innovation and execution, and bring an organization’s strategy to life. Through an optimized variety of settings, a Living Office will give individuals something that cannot be had anywhere else: a spiritual connection to work and colleagues; a platform for increased productivity and effectiveness; and a more naturally human experience of interaction and creation.

To accommodate the many needs of people doing different work, Living Office proposes a shift from standardized workstations and generic meeting rooms to a diverse landscape of purposeful settings.

Living Beats Dying

A healthy, prosperous organization thrives on passion, purpose, and growth.

Organizations and management are tools designed by humans; a form of technology that must stay up to date and remain relevant. The maximizing, profit-driven model of business served well in another era, but now requires updating. Aligning the fundamentals of human life to enterprise would prioritize individual passion and shared purpose—profit would serve as a catalyst, not a means to an end.

Creating a Living Office

Your people are unique — your office should be too.

Living Office recognizes that each business is different, and we believe place can act as a powerful instrument to express an organization’s unique culture and progress its unique ambitions. That’s why it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. Each Living Office is unique, based on the distinctive purpose, character, and activities of its inhabitants.


In this working neighborhood, called a Clubhouse, people can easily transition
between focused and collaborative work in the same setting.
