Design Story Designing the Limerick chair allowed Tom Newhouse to exercise two of his passions: the study of emerging office issues and the implementation of socially conscious, green design concepts. He observed that office workers are increasingly using temporary seating, so he made Limerick chairs light, stackable, and easy to move. At the same time, Newhouse added the unexpected.

He applied his industrial design expertise to make Limerick highly ergonomic, a feature not always provided in side chairs. Limerick is also 100 recyclable. Newhouse is committed to designing products and utilizing manufacturing technologies that place the highest priority on preserving the environment. "I have been passionate on this issue for many years," he says, "and that's one reason why I love to work with Herman Miller."
