When APG Office Furnishings relocated to a large industrial building in Cleveland’s burgeoning Ohio City district, they sought out Vocon to design a space that would mirror the elegance and beauty of Herman Miller furniture. The company’s new window-filled first-floor showroom showcases some of Cleveland’s most prime real estate, including the Quarter, a transformative mixed-use development on West 25th Street and Detroit Avenue. The clean, modern white palette in the expansive new space celebrates the dynamism and simplicity of the Herman Miller brand’s iconic modern classics while complementing existing furniture lines and anticipating future collections.
Our thoughtful design includes plants and other biophilic elements that enliven the office, adding life and light to the spaces modeled after the unique forms created in timeless, signature Herman Miller offerings like the Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair. Guests can find the same compressed plywood used in the chair in a custom reception desk throughout APG’s space, and it’s a central feature in areas such as the main pantry and a breakout lounge. There, guests can relax and discover new furniture designs via a touchscreen learning center. Time magazine once described the Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair as “something elegant, light and comfortable. Much copied but never better.” The same could be our thoughtful, award-winning design for APG Furnishings’ new 10,000 SF space.
