SWOOP LOUNGE FURNITURE

Herman Miller; Designed by Brian Kane

A versatile and fluid design

During his time as a lecturer at the California College of Art, industrial designer Brian Kane observed how students interacted with furniture in public spaces on campus. He noticed that very few of them sat in what might be considered a traditional way. They perched on arms. They curled up. They sprawled out. This observation inspired a versatile and fluid design response, which became the Swoop family of lounge furniture.
