Design Mark Goetz
Molded veneer, upholstery, metal legs
Made by Herman Miller

"I try to give things a reserved, quiet expression so they're appropriate in a variety of environments, but I also try to make interesting forms that people really like -something fresh and new." -Mark Goetz

Molded plywood carries an immediate association with classic Herman Miller designs, and Mark Goetz 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.

By using common materials and processes in innovative ways, designer Mark Goetz achieves a clean, crisp aesthetic. The Goetz complements contemporary, informal lifestyles while echoing Herman Miller's classic heritage.

The Goetz sofa features a dramatic profile with molded veneer which wraps completely around the sides and back with polished cast aluminum legs. The frame finishes include walnut, white ash, natural cherry or ebony veneers. The upholstery is available in your choice of a wide range of fabrics and leathers.

Mark Goetz

Mark Goetz’s love for product development and his understanding of manufacturing began while working in his family’s plastic injection molding business. Born outside of Pittsburgh, he was educated at Pratt Institute and graduated with a degree in Industrial Design. In addition, he spent a semester abroad to focus on furniture design and architecture at the Danish Royal Academy in Copenhagen.
Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with modern furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.
