Design by Mark Goetz, 1999.
Made in the U.S.A. by Herman Miller.
Molded plywood carries an immediate association with classic Herman Miller designs, and Mark Goetz, principal of TZ Design in New York City, skillfully and creatively incorporates this material in his sofa design. The Goetz Sofa turns traditional sofas inside out, since its plywood shell is clearly visible as both an aesthetic element and a structural frame. A complex miter at every corner allows the molded veneer to wrap completely around the sides and back.
The Goetz Sofa's dramatic profile features upholstered cushions with a balanced seat depth that gives ergonomic support as well as room to lie down. A durable polyurethane finish protects veneers. Zippered covers on all cushions can be easily removed for cleaning. Matte finish metal legs add contemporary appeal. Select from five veneer finishes with a wide-range of upholstery choices.

I love the design, but found the cushions to be too giving. I am constantly having to smooth the seat and back cushions down, as I hate seeing wrinkled fabric. It is unfortunate that the seat cushions cannot be turned upside down to even out the wear, because the fabric on the bottom is not the same as the top. Be aware that the back, and side cushions are not attached to the frame of the sofa, I think it had to be designed this way to live up to the "removable covers" claim.
Designer: Mark Goetz
Mark Goetz thinks about furniture in ways that most of us don't. In his 20-year design career, he has been responsible for numerous collections of seating and furniture pieces with a classically modern appeal.
Herman Miller invited Mark to design a sofa for their Home division. The goal was to create an innovative piece that would complement the work of great designers Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, and Isamu Noguchi. The Goetz Sofa is a design of beauty, comfort, and functionality. It is perfectly suited for everyday living. Through the years Mark has forged and maintained a strong working relationship with Herman Miller in which he's also been engaged in several projects, including ergonomic task seating, the Intersect Portfolio for Collaboration, and the Aside stacking chair.View other products by Mark Goetz
