Herman Miller Named To List Of Most Innovative Companies

Saturday 23 February 2008

Fast Company magazine today named Herman Miller, Inc. to its \"Fast 50\" list of the world’s most innovative companies. Herman Miller ranked 26th this year and was the only representative of the contract furniture industry.

The \"Fast 50,\" announced in the March 2008 issue of Fast Company, highlights how innovation can drive economic growth. From green consumer-products phenomenon Method to 100-year-old Corning, which spends $2 million each workday on R&D, the list celebrates companies that are redefining the rules of business through new ideas. Other notable companies on Fast Company\'s \"Fast 50\" include Google, Facebook, GE, Nike, and Nokia. Twelve of the 50 firms are based outside the U.S. Fifteen of the 50 are based in and around Silicon Valley.

In naming Herman Miller to the list, the magazine cited Convia, the company\'s new subsidiary and eponymous electrical infrastructure system that enables programmable interiors, with resulting energy savings for buildings. Also noted was C2, a new desktop climate control device that both warms and cools the user and is part of Herman Miller\'s new Be Collection of personal accessories.

Last October, Fast Company set out to identify and rank the world\'s most innovative companies. The magazine deployed dozens of reporters around the globe to gather data and interview experts and business leaders in every industry to get their nominations. The final 50 were selected from a list of 300 finalist companies. The magazine placed a high premium on companies that had demonstrated significant innovation over the past year. Actual rankings were determined by vote by a panel of editors and writers.
