Cognita Storage Bench from Blu Dot & Herman Miller

Last month at ICFF, we were excited about the new Lifework collection of home-office furniture from Herman Miller. Specifically, the Airia desk and media cabinet. Our enthusiasm for these attractive, modern furniture pieces built that embrace technology in the home have been eclipsed by our need for another design in the Lifework portfolio, the Cognita Storage Bench...

Designed by Minneapolis-based Blu Dot for Herman Miller, Cognita is multi-functional as an upholstered bench and storage space. The upholstered section lifts to reveal a place for hanging files or linens and the hard-surfaced side of the bench houses two drawers and a hinged lid with a storage tray — perfect for remote controls!

We think this piece is bound to be a new Herman Miller classic! The seating upholstery is available in three colors: chocolate, celery and chili. We found the Cognita Bench for sale online for $1000.
