Design Ray Wilkes, 1976 Steel, plywood, injection molded foam, upholstery Made by Herman Miller
Designed by Ray Wilkes and first introduced in 1976, this eye-catching modular armchair made a lasting impression with bold, rounded-edge cushions that reminded people of the shape of Chiclet gum. Steel brackets joining the seat and back allow for independent flex that provides a surprising level of individual comfort.
A playful silhouette that appears to float.
This postmodern design has been reintroduced in new fabrics and hues.
Beautifully smooth contours give this piece a fluid, uniform appearance.
Innovative injection foam molding technique creates smooth shapes with no waste.
Dubbed “Chiclet” due to its rounded-edge cushions that look like the classic gum.
