Having officially debuted in Milan at Herman Miller’s exhibition during Salone Del Mobile, the Pillar Bedroom Group by Michael Anastassiades is now available for order. Offered in Walnut and Light Oak, the Pillar Bedroom Group is comprised of a tall five-drawer dresser, low six-drawer dresser, and bed (queen or king) with a headboard available in matching veneer or upholstered in a variety of fabrics to allow for further customization.
The Pillar Bedroom Group is Herman Miller’s second full suite of bedroom furnishings—a four-post bed and matching dressers offer consumers a contemporary option for the bedroom, in contrast with the mid-century Nelson Bedroom Collection, which debuted in 1950 and was reintroduced in 2016.
“While producing this collection has been a new exploration for me into the territory of industrial furniture, it allowed a natural continuation of my philosophy of simplicity, timelessness and honesty,” said Anastassiades. “These are ongoing themes that stem from a foundational necessity in my practice to strip form to its elemental core.”
If you ask designer Michael Anastassiades, the bedroom doesn’t draw quite enough attention for its role in the home. His Pillar Bedroom Group is an honest answer to the shift of a previously utilitarian room to a sacred space of leisure and contemplation. He began this project as he begins all projects—with a singular focus on quality and an exploration of the kinds of materials and details that stand the test of time. The result is a united and discreetly beautiful essential bedroom collection with considered brass details.
Pillar is the third furnishing project born from Herman Miller’s long-standing relationship with the London-based designer, all which follow his design process of pairing down an object to its essence. This approach is not merely a process of reduction, but rather a thoughtful consideration of proportion, materiality, and the overall physical presence of an object as it relates to its user. Anastassiades previous projects with Herman Miller include the Spot Stool (2016) and Doubleframe Table (2018).
As Herman Miller continues to expand its offer in the consumer/retail space, the collection helps to bolster the company’s home assortment and bedroom category. Available to order beginning September 1, 2019, the Pillar Bedroom Group is available through Herman Miller, Design Within Reach, and Herman Miller’s network of retailers.
