Arnitel elastomer gives the Mirra image

DSM Engineering Plastics (Sittard) : 19 February, 2004  (Application Story)
Herman Miller, a pioneer and leader in the office furniture industry, has specified Arnitel EM400 from DSM Engineering Plastics for the seat carrier on its new Mirra Chair.
Herman Miller, a pioneer and leader in the office furniture industry, has specified Arnitel EM400 from DSM Engineering Plastics for the seat carrier on its new Mirra Chair.

“Herman Miller needed a flexible solution for the latest offering in its groundbreaking line of task chairs and as with past chair programs, DSM was able to provide a functional solution with Arnitel,” said Dough Bosch of DSM.

Engineers at Dahti Technologies selected Arnitel because of the material’s softness and flexibility. “Arnitel offers a unique combination of stiffness and elongation,” explained Tim Coffield of Dahti. “Both of these properties are critical to the manufacturing and functionality of the mechanical zipper (an invention of Dahti’s which was applied to the Herman Miller design).”

The Arnitel seat carrier on the Mirra Chair is held in place by mechanically interlocking with the plastic. DSM’s Akulon is used by Herman Miller in their line of Equa Chairs, and Arnitel material is used in the Herman Miller Aeron chair.
