You feel Embody’s Pixelated Support the moment you sit down – a sense that you are floating, yet perfectly balanced. Thanks to a dynamic matrix of pixels, Embody’s seat and back surfaces automatically conform to your body’s micro-movements, distributing your weight evenly as you sit. This reduces pressure and encourages movement, both of which are key to maintaining healthy circulation and focus.
Function You Can See and Feel
Form doesn’t just follow function with Embody®. Function is on full display. Every part of the chair was designed to serve a very specific, health-positive purpose. Embody’s technology isn’t hidden – it is part of the aesthetic.
A Exoskeletal Design
The exoskeletal form of Embody® was inspired by the human spine, so why not make the chair’s covering behave like skin? Herman Miller collaborated with materials designer Susan Lyons to create new textiles specifically for Embody®. Embody® uses spacer and knit constructions, the kind used in sneakers and geo-textiles. They cushion the sitter, are breathable, translucent, and resilient. Every bit of material used is purposeful. Nothing is wasted or superfluous.
Embody’s frameless, narrow back allows your arms and shoulders to move more freely. This movement helps open your lungs and encourages deeper breathing, as well as more focused thinking. Zoned Support The Embody® tilt provides three zones of support that introduce a new model of kinematics that stabilises the pelvis and supports the upper back without pressure on the thighs. This technology supports the spine through a wide range of work postures.
In the working recline, Embody® shifts your weight to the chair’s back, helping your head and eyes stay perfectly aligned with your computer display.
The support continues in Embody’s maximum tilt position, allowing reflective tasks such as talking on the phone, stretching, and most importantly, thinking.
