Ceviches & Mezcal @ Herman Miller Showroom


A few weeks ago, I was invited to a really, really, cool event organized by Herman Miller at their headquarters/showroom. It's okay if you're unfamiliar with Herman Miller, this is a fashion blog and this company is all about industrial design and providing solutions to organizations. I know it's not directly related to the usual topics on the blog but sometimes you just need to diversify in order to win.

Herman Miller functions around the principle of "Living Office" which, in a nutshell, means that if you spend most of your time at an office, then it should be equipped properly to make you as happy and productive as possible. In their headquarters, everything is conditioned according to what their staff needs; everything is ergonomic, in open spaces, stimulates the building of relationships between coworkers and, most importantly, functional. 

The event involved a tasting of mezcal and, for an instant, we became chefs and prepared our own ceviche. Gotta admit, mine was pretty darn good and it was my first time cooking a dish like this. Afterwards, a showroom tour was given and that's when I fell in love with everything. Think Google but way more sophisticated and less geeky. Don't forget, Herman Miller offers furniture and a service of workplace consultants that will help optimize any office and its respective environment.

// Hace unas cuantas semanas, me invitaron a un evento bien padre organizado por Herman Miller en sus cuarteles generales/showroom. Está bien si no están muy familiarizados con la empresa, esto es un blog de moda y Herman Miller es más de diseño industrial y provisión de soluciones a organizaciones. Sé que no está directamente relacionado con los temas habituales del blog pero a veces hay que diversificar para ganar.

Herman Miller funciona bajo el principio de "living office" que, en pocas palabras, significa que si pasas la mayor parte del tiempo en una oficina, entonces debería estar equipada apropiadamente para hacerte tan feliz y productivo como sea posible. En sus cuarteles generales, todo está acondicionado de acuerdo a lo que su personal necesita; todo es ergonómico, en espacios abiertos, estimulando la creación de relaciones entre co trabajadores y, más importante, funcional.

El evento involucró una cata de mezcal y, por un instante, todos nos convertimos en chefs y preparamos nuestro propio ceviche. Debo admitir, el mío era buenísimo y fue la primera vez que cocinaba un platillo así. Tras eso, hubo un tour por el showroom y ahí fue cuando me enamoré de todo. Piensen Google pero mucho más sofisticado y menos ñoño. No lo olviden, Herman Miller ofrece muebles y un servicio de consultoría para lugares de trabajo que ayudará a optimizar cualquier oficina y su respectivo ambiente.
My masterpiece <3 
Thanks Herman Miller for opening my eyes to a whole new office-related reality.

Love always,
Hen.
