We all have an inner compass, developed over time, that helps us decide what is right (or wrong) for us as individuals. Our compasses may be influenced by other people, but they are uniquely our own. Organizations have them too; sometimes they’re called tenets. A tenet, according to Merriam-Webster, is “a principle, belief, or doctrine generally held to be true; especially one held in common by members of an organization, movement, or profession.” At Herman Miller, we apply our design tenets to almost everything we do: products, communications, buildings and interiors, hospitality and experiences.
