@ajchen will those chairs ever be available in a production model? I have long desired one and that would be perfect for our new home
For many reasons, they will not be in production for general availability. We really pushed for it but the nature of the leather has Herman Miller concerned that customers will complain about it. All the leathers they offer have been extensively tested and they have stringent requirements for them. Of course, the beauty of this makeup is how much it will change but I can understand their commitment to their brand. It's too bad that there won't be more out there, but we are still very thankful for the opportunity.
If you're really into the idea, you can always track down a vintage set with damaged leather (you should be able to get it on the cheap) and then have it reupholstered. I can find out some authorized Herman Miller restoration folks for you if that's a path you want to take.
Thanks for the kind words!
