If your business is interested in achieving a lower environmental impact at a higher quality and lower price than most new office furniture offers, take a look at used Herman Miller office systems to get the most “bang for the buck.”
Since inventing the office cubicle in 1967, Herman Miller office furniture has become instantly recognizable to customers and is the undisputed choice of office designers and architects due to its durability, flexibility, and aesthetic designs. The high quality also brings high prices. But these are the very same features that make used and refurbished Herman Miller cubicles such a great value.
About Herman Miller Ethospace
Introduced in 1984, the Ethospace frame-and-tile high-performance workspace system was way ahead of its time and the first of its kind in the office furniture industry. The system is anchored by a virtually indestructible steel frame. It’s designed to accept dozens of cables and wires for power and data, and serves as a foundation for hang-on storage and work surfaces.
Then there are the innovative tiles which come in dozens of styles and can be configured, and reconfigured, in minutes to adapt to changing work environments. Users can swap out tiles, for example, to give workers more overhead storage. Or add high frames and acoustic tiles to absorb sound. The system is flexible enough to be changed as needed.
If tiles on a workstation get stained, they can be popped out and replaced. If your business needs change and you want a new look, the tiles can be reupholstered with new fabric. If you want to allow more natural light into employee’s cubicles, fabric tiles can be replaced with glass tiles. There are many ways to customize the frames and tiles to create the look and functionality you want.
Herman Miller was also a founding member of the Green Building Council, and the company continually wins awards for its environmental achievements. Ethospace cubicle systems are 78% recyclable and GREENGUARD® certified. The steel core is 100% recyclable and coatings are VOC-free. Some components are made from sustainably harvested wood, and fabrics are created from natural or synthetic fibers.
Why Buy It Used or Refurbished?
First, purchasing used Ethospace cubicles allows you to invest in some of the best office furniture in the world without spending a fortune on new products.
Dealers such as EthoSource, headquartered in Morgantown, PA, specialize in pre-owned Herman Miller Ethospace furniture which they acquire from Fortune 500 companies across the nation. They choose the best pieces and transport them to their headquarters, where they clean, inspect and repair them as needed.
If you prefer, their refurbishing program can take the pieces from needing a couple of replacement parts, some cleaning and touch-up paint and transform them into “like new” condition. You, the customer, can choose colors and fabrics that best fit your company’s style, along with whatever tile styles and accessories you would like incorporated in the design.
The beauty of it is that you can purchase either used or refurbished Ethospace cubicles for a fraction of the cost of brand new furniture. Not only that, but purchasing used or refurbished cubicles can help your company achieve LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Instead of blowing your office budget on completely new high-end office furniture, visit the websites of dealers like EthoSource to see their current selection of used Herman Miller Ethospace products. You’ll be glad you did.
