Cosm wins Red Dot Award as best office chair

Cosm, designed by Studio 7.5 for Herman Miller, has won the Red Dot Best of the Best Product Design Award in the office chairs category. The award rounds out Cosm’s first year on the market, taking home a suite of awards for the new design. Herman Miller introduced Cosm, designed by Studio 7.5, in Milan coinciding with Salone Del Mobile, April 2018. The chair was launched fully to the market in Autumn 2018.  Today, Cosm chairs have been sold to more than 1,700 companies in 90 countries around the world.

This week, Cosm received the prestigious Red Dot Best of the Best Product Design Award—the competition’s top distinction in the “Office Chairs” category—for its innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics, durability, symbolic and emotional content, product periphery, self-explanatory quality, and ecological compatibility. These criteria are used throughout the Red Dot’s search for “good design and innovation.”
