Composed of five designers--Claudia Plikat, Burkhard Schmitz, Nicolai Neubert, Carola Zwick, and Roland Zwick--Studio 7.5 has been involved for over 10 years in the design and development of products that improve the way people work. They consider themselves "the grandchildren of the Eameses" and, like those pioneering designers, they are experts at observing how workers interact with their environments and finding ways to make that interaction more natural. Sharing a genuine passion for seating, they know seating as a science and work to bring it to another level. Rather than relying on any individual in the firm, Studio 7.5 works as a team, without titles or hierarchy. The Mirra chair is a product of their collective imagination, talent, and persistence--along with a willingness to break the mold in order to create a chair that sets a new standard for comfort, fit, balanced ride, and visual refinement in its price range. Studio 7.5 envisioned a chair that reacts to what people do. Part of the concept was to make the chair like a second skin, like a shadow of the sitter. From this concept, Mirra"s passive adjustability was born. From the TriFlex™ back to the AireWeave™ seat suspension to the Harmonic™ tilt, Mirra does just what Studio 7.5 worked to achieve: Just sit on it, and it fits. There are only a few adjustment controls, and they are designed to be very intuitive. Mirra features common materials applied in original ways--such as the electrometric seat suspension and moulded polymer back that are used instead of foam and fabric. The relationship between materials and technology was optimized to achieve maximum performance with minimal materials. User testing, benchmarking, focus groups, tilt performance studies, and other methods were used to ensure the chair meets customer needs and provides advanced ergonomic performance. For example, research over the years has shown that the biggest concern users have is back support. In fact, back issues account for the second highest number of work illnesses. The designers took this to heart and focused on the back as an area of differentiation. Herman Miller and Studio 7.5 also used results from the Civilian American and European Surface Anthropometry Resource (CAESAR) study, which surveyed body measurements of people aged 18-65, using the latest 3-D technology. Data from the study--the first full-body, 3-D surface anthropometry survey of the U.S. and Europe--helped ensure the chair fits people from the 5th percentile woman to the 95th percentile man.

Questions & Answers
Herman Miller ® Mirra ® Basic Chair
A Herman miller classic
Bradley from Chicago, IL– Verified Buyer
Who couldn't live this chair. Herman Miller is just the best design when it comes to mixing a modern and retro look but with all the comfort. Very easy to assemble. We have these for our employees at the office and they all love them.
Best chair ever
Celeste from São Paulo, Brazil– Verified Buyer
Confortanle, stylish, good for those who have to sit all day. Love it!
Danielle from Johns Creek, GA– Verified Buyer
My husband chose this chair after suffering with 3 year old basic office chair which in the last months of it's use was torturing my husband daily, leaving him with aches and pains because the padding and support was nonexistent. I fully upgraded our Mirra (only making the mistake of not choosing the wheeled castors, but I have purchased replacements) and it was worth the extra cost to make sure my husband has the best chair possible. The chair is comfortable and my IT husband can work 15 hours in the chair without discomfort. Assembly was simple enough. Shipment was quoted at 3-4 weeks, but it arrived in 2!
Great office Chair
Eddie Tsu from Las Vegas, NV– Verified Buyer
I bought this chair as an open-box item. The chair arrived quickly in its original packaging without a scratch. Its a basic model without all the bells and whistles of a higher end model, but the build quality is just as good. My overall impression is that this is a very comfortable and solidly built office chair, not to mention its stylish design. Im totally satisfied.

The chair came very quickly and was easy to assemble. I am using it as a sewing chair as I spend a lot of time at my machine. It is very comfortable. My son-in-law has the same chair that I loved when I visited. I was hoping the color would be a little more blue, but it has grown on me.

Herman Miller began in 1923 as a manufacturer of traditional residential furniture, became a leader in "modern" furniture in the 1930s and 1940s; developed lasting ties through the 1950s with legendary industrial designers who led the company in new directions; transformed the office furniture industry with the first panel system in the 1960s; invented and refined ergonomic work seating in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s; reinvented the geometry of systems furniture in 2000, and is today the second largest office furniture company with customers and locations around the world. Their history of employee participation and ownership and technological innovation has long roots and continues to grow. They have always worked hard to be serious about both people and business. They look at their primary goal as creating great places to work.
George Nelson laid out five tenets of Herman Miller's design philosophy 50 years ago:
While fashion and style have their place, the main criterion for a Herman Miller product has remained constant: Does it truly solve a problem that people care about in a way that improves upon other solutions, or pioneers a new and better answer altogether? The answer is Yes.
