Mimeo by Allsteel Receives GOOD DESIGN™ Award
Mimeo, a task chair from Allsteel designed in partnership with Bruce Fifield of StudioFifield, Milan, has won a 2015 GOODDESIGN™ award in the furniture category. Founded in 1950 by legendary architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., and organized annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies, GOOD DESIGN is the world’s oldest and most recognized design awards program. Truly international in scope, it covers new products designed and manufactured in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa.
The honor acknowledges Mimeo’s advances in technology and aesthetics. The chair’s innovative weight-activated motion automatically delivers the appropriate amount of tension for every desired posture, from full upright to full recline. Available in eight fabric colors, Mimeo is appropriately scaled for use in open office plans without overwhelming the environment. And while its distinctive silhouette and smart use of materials create a strong visual impact, it readily adapts to a variety of office design styles.
