Herman Miller and POSH recently moved from Warwick House in Taikoo Place to Hopewell Centre in Wan Chai. The move not only saw them shift to a more accessible space, but it also enabled them to put into practice everything they stand for. Here, there are no set workpoints, and a variety of different settings – all of which incorporate products from Herman Miller, POSH and their partners – enable users of the space to work how they want, when they want.
Industry professionals, partners and media got to explore the new showroom and test Living Office for themselves on 11 October 2016, when the brands held a media launch and evening event to introduce the space to the world. Everyone enjoyed champagne and pate in the showroom’s Cove setting, burgers and beer in the Forum setting, wine and desserts in Herman Miller’s Meeting Space, and more.
The new POSH and Herman Miller showroom is located at 4707-13, 47/F, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai.
