  • Mark Goetz - Goetz Sofa
By using common materials and processes in innovative ways, designer Mark Goetz achieves a clean, crisp aesthetic. The Goetz sofa complements contemporary, informal lifestyles while echoing Herman Miller's classic heritage. It also gives supportive comfort. A complex miter at every corner allows the molded veneer to wrap completely around the sides and back. Beautiful wood.

Choice of natural walnut, ash, cherry, or ebonized ash veneer. Fabric or leather. Upholstery meets the veneered surface at a subtle, understated edge. Shallow enough to give correct support while sitting upright; deep enough to provide an area for napping. Easy Care Practical details. A durable polyurethane finish protects veneers; zippered covers on all cushions can be easily removed for cleaning. Design Story Molded plywood carries an immediate association with classic Herman Miller designs, and Mark Goetz, principal of TZ Design in New York City, skillfully and creatively incorporates this material in his sofa design.

While traditional construction consists of a wooden frame with padding and upholstery applied over it, the Goetz sofa turns tradition inside out, since its plywood shell is clearly visible as both an aesthetic element and a structural frame. The sofa's practicality extends to one of its most important features - comfort. Goetz conducted his own research and consulted with other experts to arrive at a seat depth that gives ergonomic support as well as room to lie down.
