Office-furniture company Herman Miller Inc. agreed to acquire rival Knoll Inc. for $1.8 billion, moving to take advantage of workplace renovations and restructurings as the pandemic eases.
The story of Herman Miller and Knoll's merger is uniquely interesting. How might two brands with such a rich history bridge approaches and history?
Will this merger result in a healthy competition/collaboration, does one absorb the other, or will the partnership develop something wholly new?
We will meet for a 60 min conversation:
- No introductions
- There are no speakers, which means there is no audience
- No intellectual fencing; don’t mention a book or a dead philosopher (or a brand, or an agency): instead, state the logic, metaphor, or value
- Prompt in breakout rooms, followed by a discussion
- Space will be similar in spirit to CBS and Thirdness.
The session will take place on May 3rd, 3 pm ET, 60 mins. We will need a minimum of 5 people and cap it at 12.
