Herman Miller Brings Freedom and Flexibility to the Workspace with Byne System

This five-in-one workstation answers the needs of organizations navigating change.

This month, Herman Miller launched Byne System™, a highly configurable workstation that supports change as it happens.

Byne System™ is our response to the realities of the modern workplace, as well as the needs of organizations dealing with change. Merging five products in one, Byne System™ is a highly configurable workstation that offers endless configuration opportunities. It brings all the best elements of four of Herman Miller’s best-loved workstations – Imagines, Optimis, Layout, and Arras® – together with a new wooden leg style, Sylvain.

Stacy Stewart, Regional Director MEA at Herman Miller, “Through our research, Herman Miller realized the value of office furniture that can adapt in the face of changing rules, regulations, safety needs, as well as fluctuating project and team needs. There was also growing demand for customization from our clients, and we believe Byne System brings that freedom and flexibility to the Workspace.”


Byne System™ begins with a robust base framework, with universal beams supporting the undercarriage. Users can build on this base with one of five leg options, from the minimalist Optimis to the elegance of Sylvain. Next, users can choose their work surface, combining Layout’s legs with the Arras® worktop, for example, or they could mix the Optimis leg with Layout’s work surface.

By giving organizations the freedom to choose everything from the legs and worktop to materials, finishes, screen types, and tabletop set-up, Byne System™ supports maximum freedom when it comes to office planning and activities. This makes it ideal for traditional offices, open-plan collaborative spaces, and semi-open spaces alike; and for organizations both large and small.


Byne System™ can even be configured in multiple ways within the same workspace. By mixing and matching different leg and table options, Byne System™ can be tailored to support a host of different workplace activities, from solo focus work to interactive settings designed to foster collaboration and creativity.

Providing added flexibility is the toolbar, which works across all Byne System™ products. Raised above the work surface, the toolbar keeps desk surfaces clean, while supporting screens, accessories, smartphones, and more. Byne System™ also caters to current and future power needs, with thoughtfully positioned power channels and plenty of space for additional cables.

As well as answering the need for flexible, customizable furniture, Byne System™ was designed in response to another organizational need: the need for speedy office solutions that support workplace change as it happens. Based on existing systems and modular by nature, Byne System meets this need by streamlining the ordering and specifying process. It’s also easy to assemble and quick to install. Naturally agile, this five-in-one workstation is the perfect choice for organizations dealing with rapidly changing market conditions.
