In our small western Pennsylvania town, people get up and go to work, just like you and me. They’re hardworking, patriotic men and women that have called western Pennsylvania their home for generations. It is these men and women who make up the workforce of PS Furniture. It is these men and women that make this company great.

While there are many workers who comprise the backbone of our PS Furniture operation, we want to take this opportunity to highlight one person, in particular. Jan Miller, a PS Furniture veteran of nearly 20 years. Jan perfectly embodies the best qualities of the “American worker” and we are so fortunate to have her with us.

Jan has had an incredibly productive career at PS Furniture, leading departments, leading by example her co-workers and acting as one of our “go to” people when we need someone to master new or challenging processes. For example, Jan is filling the role of our production lead on PS Furniture’s latest product: Müm. If you’ve been following this PS blog, you’ll have heard about this “perch seating” product that is making a big splash in the contract furniture market. Each Müm that PS Furniture ships is constructed and upholstered by Jan personally!

Jan has participated in the production of Müm since the beginning, providing vital production insights throughout the process. It is this commitment to excellence, characteristic of PS Furniture and Jan, that gives us confidence in Müm’s potential.

We are proud of Jan Miller and our long-time association with her. We are an American company with American values and Jan Miller is one of our best.

If you’ve been keeping up with the recent PS Furniture blog posts, then you’ll know a little bit about the designers of PS’ newest dynamic furniture solution: Müm. Those designers, of course, are none other than Union Design the creative product licensing division of Shea+Latone Design Development, based out of East Greenville, Pennsylvania. At PS Furniture, we know that our business is built on products that provide solutions. In order to provide continuous furniture solutions, as PS has over its nearly one hundred-year history, there’s a certain need for innovation. And that’s why, with this blog post, I want to take a little bit of time to talk about Union Design and Shea+Latone, the designers behind the innovation that keeps PS moving.

Shea+Latone is the brainchild of Bill Shea and Tom Latone, who had collaborated throughout the 1980’s in product development for renowned furniture design company Knoll International. After 18 years of building a successful design development and prototyping business, Tom and Bill retired and sold the business to three long time employees, Cory Brechbill, Shaun Smith, and Jeff Theesfeld. These new partners have built upon the development, prototyping, testing and engineering services of Shea+Latone and started Union Design. Union creates innovative design concepts and licenses these designs to others, like PS Furniture, for manufacturing.

Located in East Greenville, Pennsylvania, Shea+Latone and Union sit right in the heart of the little known international modern design scene. And their work reflects it. Aside from the innovative designs they license to PS, such as Müm, the product development and engineering division, Shea+Latone, has brought that same level of insight and knowledge to many different industries. Be it the furniture, medical, industrial and consumer product industries, you can be sure to find Shea+Latone’s work at the forefront of modern design.

Here at PS, we’re proud of the people we work with. One good look at a product like Müm is all a person needs to be convinced of the design prowess of a firm like Union and Shea+Latone. It is our hope that through the relationships we create today, such as that with Shea+Latone, we will be able to continue providing innovative furniture solutions for years to come.

Perch seating may be a growing trend in the commercial furniture industry, but what sets Müm apart? What makes Müm stand out in a crowded room, as it did at NeoCon 2016? The answer is simple. The upholstery.

With numerous color options across two distinct material types, the range of expression is endless. Müm is available in Knoll Delite color fabric and Vision Fabrics Midship vinyl. No matter what the backdrop, Müm will fit right in.

Within the Knoll Delite fabric options, consumers have the options of eight distinct colors from orange to charcoal. A favorite of mine is the turquoise. It has a chic modern feel that makes it stand out and blend in at the same time. For the 100% vinyl upholstery, manufactured by Vision Fabrics, the color options are as diverse as royal blue, almond, and Azure. For those whose color-needs are not met by the preexisting options, PS will also offer custom color options in both material types.

Whatever your furniture needs, PS is committed to providing a solution. Müm’s upholstery, while ascetically pleasing, assists in providing that solution. From fabric to vinyl, the upholstery will withstand and stand out through countless spills, accidents, and crises. Each option has something unique to offer the consumer.

PS Furniture is committed to offering furniture solutions. That is why Müm is COM compliant, to allow for Müm to fit every consumer and designer’s space needs. It is our hope that through a wide range of upholstery options offered across the Müm line, every consumer will be able to walk away satisfied. If you have further questions regarding our COM guidelines check them out here or a customer service agent is standing by via live chat.

Now that we’ve all been introduced to Müm and the various implementations of touchdown seating in general, its time to take a look at the history of this little “perch”. Müm was originally developed by our collaborative design partners at Union Design, an industrial design firm based in East Greenville, Pennsylvania. For over 18 years Union Design has provided product solutions to various clients on a global scale.

Müm, was originally developed as Mesa. The concept was that, like natural mesas that occur across the American southwest, Müm functions to break up the modern open space of work environments. From classrooms, to conference spaces, hotel lobbies and more, Müm rise above the plain of the open work environment. Union Design is the creative arm of Union Design whose goal is to design innovative products that are unique in aesthetic and function, with the endgame of licensing those designs to a select few manufacturers. Müm is one of those innovative products, and PS one of those manufacturers. This dynamic seat has five different bottom modules that let you choose to rock, rolls or be stationary.

Now that we know what Müm is and where it came from, we have to ask: where is it going? Jeff Theesfield, partner at Union Design, sees Müm as a “perch” seating solution in areas many would never immediately imagine. Studies have demonstrated that children with special needs benefit immensely from increased mobility. The ability to move around, without the constraints of a typical desk and chair setup, allows children to relax and focus on their studies. Mum is space-economical and portable, designed to be moved to facilitate greater collaboration. It’s no wonder then, that Müm recently won gold in the 2016 “Best of Neocon” category of Education Solutions.

While Müm continues to prove itself as a well conceived and designed piece of furniture, more functions and settings will continue to make themselves known.

Müm is the newest addition to PS Furniture’s range of “Furniture for Flexible Spaces”. Müm is part of a new category of seating, called “touchdown” or “perch” seating.

“Touchdown” seating is designed for short interval seating, literally “taking a seat”. Two design elements make Müm unique. One is a choice of rocking or rolling bases, inviting the person to move while seated. The second is its amazing portability. Grab Müm’s leather handle and carry your Müm to anywhere you want to sit.

Müm is designed around a set of modular components. Müm is available in five different bottom modules in two different heights. Whether you are looking for a seat that rocks, rolls, or is simply stationary, there’s a Müm for you.

Touchdown and perch seating options have recently begun to grow in popularity and Müm is the best in its class, having won a “Best of Neocon” award in 2016.

For those of you intrigued by this newest trend in seating, here are a few illustrations where touchdown seating can offer the perfect furniture solution.

  • Touchdown seating, and Müm specifically, is perfect for the modern open office layout. These space-economical, portable seats can be used to fill open areas and facilitate a more dynamic group work environment. With rocking or rolling bottoms, Müm is perfect for high energy office environments.
  • Müm is the ideal for schools as well! Touchdown seating is already incredibly popular among educators as the small, mobile designs allow for the freedom of motion that kids want. Here again, Müm’s rocking or rolling motion is a great fit.
  • The last example of space where touchdown seating works is hotel lobbies or breakfast buffet areas. Travelers, business people, and vacationers alike are all on the go, so is Müm!
