Herman Miller’s Liveable Office Award 2013

June 7, 2013

Herman Miller Asia Pacific has launched a competition to discover the region’s most engaging and user-focused workplace – opening Monday 10 June.

Herman Miller’s Liveable Office Award is calling for workplace designs that incorporate environmentally responsible design, express an organisation’s culture and enable employees to come together and work effectively in teams. Opening on Monday 10 June, the competition promotes workplaces that focus on driving collaboration, rather than merely accommodating technology.

Entries will be assessed on how effectively the workplace:
– Helps people engage
– Brings teams together
– Enables work to happen anywhere
– Demonstrates environmental responsibility
– Encapsulates the organisation’s identity and brand

Competition entries may be submitted in two categories: Commercial Business or Small Business, and must be submitted online at between 10 June and 19 July 2013. Projects must be based in the Asia Pacific region. Entries are open to a team or company, not an individual within the company.

Prizes include a US$5000 cash prize for the Commercial Business category, and a Herman Miller office makeover worth US$5000 for the Small Business category.

The competition forms part of Herman Miller’s ‘REACH Singapore: The Power of Place’ program, a two-day design event held at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore from 1-2 August. First held in Hong Kong in 2011, REACH Singapore will include a number of global leaders in design as the ‘HM Presents’ event, with speakers including Studio 7.5 and Eames Demetrios.
