Swoop work tables allow you to easily switch from one activity to another – have your notebook, laptop or tablet resting on the table, waiting to be drawn to your side at a moment’s notice.
The Swoop work table fits into your work space smoothly and effectively.
People have been using on Brian Kane designs for years. Children and adults enjoy his very cool rubber chairs, which are part of the San Francisco MoMA permanent collection. He’s also widely known for his public design – his comfortable benches and graceful bike racks can be found on the pavements of New York and San Francisco.
In these objects, as in all his designs, Kane strives for what he calls “craft through technology”: “I have always attempted to explore existing materials and processes and use them in new ways that add an element of detail or craft that is unique.”
Care & Maintenance
With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.
Wood & Veneer
Dust regularly with a slightly damp, soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe dry with a dry, soft cloth in the directionof the wood grain.
Spills should be immediately wiped up with a damp cloth.
Once a month
Clean the surface with a soft cloth dampened with a quality cleaner formulated for wood furniture. Wipe the surface in the direction of the wood grain to remove dirt and fingerprints. Wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth.
Twice a year
Apply a good quality furniture polish with a soft cloth. Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners or polishes. Also, do not use polishes containing waxes or abrasives, or polishes that are oil based.
Products using laminate may include tabletops, work surfaces, counter caps, transaction surfaces, flipper doors, and lateral files.
For normal cleaning, wash the laminate with a soft cloth and a solution of mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth.
For minor repair of burns or other stubborn marks, apply a nonabrasive liquid kitchen cleanser with a soft cloth soaked in warm water. Rub in the direction of the grain; use caution to avoid damaging the surface texture or gloss. If no grain direction is visible, rub with a light, circular motion.
Do not use powdered abrasives or other harsh cleansers like hypochlorite bleach, hydrogen peroxide, nitric or hydrochloric acids, or lye; they may deface the surface and change the finish color.
Herman Miller veneers meet strict testing standards for resistance to wear, light, stains, water, and pressure. To reduce the risk of damage, take some precautions: Use coasters for glasses and mugs. If a glass top is added to the veneer surface, be sure it rests on felt pads.
Don’t place a potted plant on a veneer surface unless it’s in a water-tight container or in a drip tray.
Don’t let vinyl binders stay on a surface for very long. Use protective pads under equipment with “rubber” cushioning feet.
Some chemical compounds used in the feet on office equipment, such as printers and monitor stands, may leave permanent stains or marks.
Wood is susceptible to bruising and scratching from heavy office equipment, so we encourage a protective surface is placed underneath. Objects should be lifted instead of dragged across a surface. Protective pads should be used under items with a rough bottom, like pottery. Denting, caused by extreme pen pressure when writing, can also damage veneer.
Use desk pads or some other protection where a lot of paperwork is done. Sunlight can damage veneer as well, so veneer surfaces should not be in direct sunlight. To help a surface age evenly, users can periodically move items on their desks so that the entire surface is exposed to an even amount of light over time.
