Week in, week out, there’s a veritable mountain of products released. Some over-designed, some too derivative and some somewhere in between. Then there’s the select few we can’t help fawn over. These seven products are the latter — useful, innovative and eye-catching.
Herman Miller Cosm Desk Chair
Abandon all hope, ye Aeron stans, Herman Miller’s next office staple doesn’t give a damn about your precious knobs and levers. The Cosm is engineered not for one person’s pleasure, but to adapt to anyone who plants themselves in it. Thanks to a one-of-a-kind, proprietary technology called “Auto-Harmonic Tilt,” which automatically adjusts to an individual’s posture, weight and pressure points, you can expect to see Cosm chairs in every shared workspace in America fairly soon after its fall launch date. A price has yet to be announced.
