Additional Information


With the lofty goal of creating an executive chair that would provide the same health benefits as the finest task chairs around, Geiger paired designer Mark Goetz with Herman Miller PostureFit inventor Dr. Brock Walker. “I wanted to design an incredibly comfortable chair that gives you the personal fit of a custom-tailored suit … and quality feel of a high-performance automobile seat,” explains Goetz. The result of their collaboration is the Taper Chair (2017), which draws upon the latest advances to deliver exceptional comfort and performance. A contoured backrest offers zonal support in key areas to encourage you to adopt a better seated posture: hips forward, spine curved in a natural S-shape, chest open, shoulders back. SuperSeat technology yields a deep seat pocket and responsive surface, improving your circulation. And to counterbalance your body as you recline, the tilt mechanism uses a pair of adjustable carbon fiber leaf springs that control resistance. Taper received the 2017 Best of NeoCon Gold Award in the category of Ergonomic Task Seating. Backed by a 12-year manufacturer’s warranty. Made in U.S.A.
