Herman Miller Re-Releases the Chiclet

INTEL / First Look

First offered in the mid-1970s, this chic seat is back to stay.

Thirty-five years after its discontinuation, the Chiclet collection from Herman Miller is officially back. Reissued in May, the modular seating system—its official name is the Wilkes Modular Sofa Group—was originally released in 1976, and it enjoyed a decade-long stint on the market before going out of production in 1986. Dubbed the Chiclet because of its rounded-edge cushions, which have a form similar to that of the classic fruit-flavored gum, the seating collection is available as an armchair, a two-seat sofa, or a three-seat sofa. The new Chiclet designs are identical to the originals by Ray Wilkes, with an expanded range of upholstery options. —Rachel Gallaher
