Cosm Takes Home Red Dot’s Best of the Best Product Design Award


Herman Miller introduced Cosm, designed by Studio 7.5, in Milan coinciding with Salone Del Mobile, April 2018. The chair officially hit the market in fall of 2018. Over the last year, the market response for this revolutionary chair has been impeccable.

Today, Cosm chairs have been sold to more than 1,700 companies in 90 countries around the world—including more than 4,200 chairs to direct consumers in North America alone.

On July 8, 2019, 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 criterium are used throughout the Red Dot’s search for “good design and innovation.”
