Asari Upholstered Work Chair by Herman Miller®
Layered, contoured foam provides the initial comfort you get from an upholstered chair and integrated flexible rims and panels provide the long-term benefits you expect from task seating. The PostureFit, which adjusts to the lower back’s contours, fills the void that exists between the lower back and the back of the chair—all while promoting the natural alignment of the spine. Tailored for you, a synchronous, self-adjusting tilt provides natural movement, while the seat pad minimizes pressure points and provides support.

Designed by Naoto Fukasawa
Naoto Fukasawa was born in Yamanashi, Japan, in 1956 and graduated from Tama Art University in 1980. His career began at Seiko Epson, where he designed products such as wrist TVs and mini printers using micro-technology.
Fukasawa has worked on product development for many well-known brands and companies around the world, winning numerous awards for his efforts. His affiliation with Magis produced the Déjá-vu family of home furnishings, which is distinguished by its use of D-shaped aluminum extrusions. “This one distinctive extrusion enabled us to create a whole family of products,” says Fukasawa.
Asari is Fukasawa’s first design for Herman Miller. He designed the Saiba collection and Axon tables for Geiger, the Déjà-vu Collection for Magis, and Pao lighting for HAY. He is known for his product design work with Muji and has collaborated with other companies such as Alessi and Emeco.
About Herman Miller
Founded in West Michigan in 1905, Herman Miller has grown to become a world-recognized furniture brand. As a design leader and furniture innovator, they’ve partnered with some of the most influential and iconic designers of the 20th century—designers like Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Isamu Noguchi, Alexander Girard and more. In doing so, they’ve produced pieces that have become classics of industrial design, many of which are featured on permanent display in museums like the New York Museum of Contemporary Art (MoMA).
Herman Miller continued that legacy in 1994 by partnering with designers Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick. They went about developing an office chair unlike any before it. Bringing together the latest in ergonomic research and design, they developed the legendary Classic Aeron chair, the best selling office chair in the world.
Today, Herman Miller continues that tradition of design forward thinking and innovation. Partnering with the next generation of industrial designers—such as Studio 7.5 and Yves Behar— as they tackle the ergonomic and anthropometric challenges we face in today’s modern work life.
Care & Maintenance
With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. Vacuum fabric as needed, using an upholstery attachment. Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Do not use steam. For fabric stains, use a water-based cleaner (specifically made for cleaning fabric) or a solution of mild (alkaline) warm soapy water (not overly soapy) applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. If leather is soiled, it can be wiped with a soft damp cloth using a lather of any mild soap with lukewarm water. Do not spot clean leather; clean the entire surface.
Asari Work Chairs come with a 12-year Herman Miller warranty. This warranty is a promise that Asari lives up to the highest standards in the industry.
