The Mirra Chair
Natural. Effortless comfort, fit, and ergonomic support. Friendly. Colorful. Versatile. Easy to use. Responsible. A model for sustainable design.
Sometimes we at Herman Miller wonder if we ask too much of our designers. For example, we asked Studio 7.5 for a simple, good looking, versatile, highly ergonomic, and eco-friendly work chair that does more for people while requiring less of them. And to our delight, they brought us the Mirra chair. Studio 7.5 achieved our goals by using innovation to unite seemingly incompatible concepts. High art and pure science. Less material and more support. Inclusive fit and minimal adjustments. Superior performance and attractive price. They made it all come together in Mirra. Clearly, it wasnâ€™t too much to ask.
A product of imagination
Support from Top to Bottom We told Studio 7.5 that Mirra needed a one-piece, frameless backrest that uses less to do more. They came back with an idea that’s full of holes—but in a good way. They perforated a polymer material with 567 geometric shapes engineered to create three flex zones. Each zone has a different level of pliability to provide the proper level of ergonomic support and natural adjustment. The base of the backrest features a PostureFit® contour to prevent slouching when you sit forward doing computer work.
Custom Comfort The seat of Mirra adjusts itself the moment you sit down. The woven polymer combines with the suspension design to conform to your contours and distribute your weight evenly. The breathable material is engineered to maintain its strength, shape, and responsiveness for many years of continual use.
A Balanced Ride The tilt is like the brain of a work chair. So we used precision German engineering to make a really smart one. Mirraâ€™s patented Harmonicâ„˘ tilt lets your body pivot naturally at the ankles, knees, and hips as you recline. And the mechanism provides consistent resistance throughout the recline range. It knows just what to do for a smooth, even, effortless ride.

Great for One, Great for Many
When you sit in Mirra, it immediately adjusts to your body with no effort from you. If you like, you can fine-tune the fit and feel with a few simple adjustments— lumbar, for example, or the innovative FlexFront® seat edge that adjusts seat depth without a sliding seat pan. This unique combination of passive and active adjustments lets Mirra fit 95 percent of the world’s population.
The design team at Studio 7.5 in Berlin, Germany, brings together engineering excellence with a passion for innovation and a keen sensitivity to how people interact with design. They understand the science of seating and strive to take it to the next level. That’s where they took Mirra.
