Designers: Bill Stumpf and Jeff Weber
Envelop is a revolutionary desk that moves to promote better posture and comfort. It’s available with standard pin-height adjustment and supports a range of seated postures. Finally, an adjustable desk that helps you, your chair, and your technology work in harmony, so you can feel better and work better.
When you sit in front of a computer all day, you and your chair move, but the technology stays put. The result? A poor connection, back and neck pain, eyestrain, fatigue. The radical solution? Envelop, an adjustable, ergonomic desk that helps you move throughout the day while keeping your eyes focused on the work.
"Not defined by boundaries"Bill Stumpf and Jeff Weber View Design Story
When you sit at your computer, your body aligns itself so that your eyes focus most easily on the monitor. Because the ability to view the monitor is most important, your eyes will always "win"—even if that means the rest of your body loses. Envelop's unique design features a surface that slides toward you and away from you, with a seventy-degree tilt that keeps technology in the correct ergonomic positions and maintains the visual display at the optimal distance.
It's called Envelop because the "infield"—the sliding, flexible support surface—envelops you as you work. As you recline in your chair it slides toward you to provide continuous flexible support for your forearms and wrists on the soft, resilient surface. Because Envelop moves and encourages movement, it lets you take full advantage of an ergonomic task chair with a synchronous tilt. It provides ergonomic support through a wide range of seated and standing postures, including a comfortable recline.
Envelop fits whatever space you need it to be in. Its clean, trim aesthetic works harmoniously with any design, and you can have it in a wide variety of laminates, veneers, and finishes that lets you match any decor. It's also designed to fit just about anyone's body. The pocket that envelops your body accommodates from the fifth to 98th percentile of both women and men.
Envelop has been designed to meet the rigorous Herman Miller Design for the Environment protocol. Made from 32 percent recycled materials, it is 53 percent recyclable at the end of its useful life.
