Barker Street Presents The Zeph Chair

We are most certainly having chair envy after our recent encounter with The Zeph Chair, now available from Barker Street. It combines a classic silhouette with modern ergonomics.


The Zeph Chair finds a happy home between mid-century modern aesthetics and the research-backed ergonomics of today’s work chairs. Its advanced yet simple design offers more for less – more comfort, colours and style – made with fewer components. All this at a price that makes it the perfect entrée into the world of Herman Miller performance seating.

Move with the Kinematic Monoshell

Setting out to animate a shell chair – not an easy feat – the designers at Studio 7.5 used 3D printing to iterate through prototypes of the monoshell until they achieved what they deem a gold standard in ergonomics: a recline that feels natural in a chair that moves with you. The geometry of the design allows your body’s pivot points to create the right counterbalance for a proper ergonomic sit. This is an experience that leaves you feeling supported and energised as you move in the chair, and about your day.

Change it up with 3D Knit

The chair’s optional, removable and interchangeable 3D Knit easily slides directly into the shell. No tools are required and it can be swapped out for one of the other 20 textile colour choices if your space needs a refresh. Plus, it’s made from 50% post-consumer recycled content. Because it’s knitted to the chair’s exact dimensions, there’s zero fabric waste.

Find joy in colour

The playful eight-colour palette for the Zeph Chair’s shell and base was designed to complement and enliven the home, office, college campus or anywhere in between. Furthermore, it allows you to get creative in pairing the chair with your unique sense of style. Enjoy the return of dipped-in-colour, one hue from top to bottom, which debuted on Zeph predecessor, Cosm.

Coming soon: a full family

Stay tuned for even more ways to customise your Zeph Chair, including additional base and knit options.

The Zeph Chair will be available at Barker Street shortly.
