Empowering the Body

The complex contouring of Taper’s backrest focuses support for musculoskeletal balance, encouraging a powerful seated posture: hips rotated forward, spine curved in a natural S-shape, chest open, shoulders back.

Internal Suspension

Smart Moves

Considered Proportions

Design Story

The Taper Chair reflects Mark Goetz’s passion for designing new ways to address evolving human needs. Recognizing the need for high-performing, ergonomic office chairs for executive offices, he collaborated with longtime Herman Miller seating advisor Dr. Brock Walker to create Taper. As a result of their unique collaboration, Taper delivers an exceptional experience of comfort and performance, at a level of quality and craft that is unmistakably Geiger.
