Perch seating may be a growing trend in the commercial furniture industry, but what sets Müm apart? What makes Müm stand out in a crowded room, as it did at NeoCon 2016? The answer is simple. The upholstery.

With numerous color options across two distinct material types, the range of expression is endless. Müm is available in Knoll Delite color fabric and Vision Fabrics Midship vinyl. No matter what the backdrop, Müm will fit right in.

Within the Knoll Delite fabric options, consumers have the options of eight distinct colors from orange to charcoal. A favorite of mine is the turquoise. It has a chic modern feel that makes it stand out and blend in at the same time. For the 100% vinyl upholstery, manufactured by Vision Fabrics, the color options are as diverse as royal blue, almond, and Azure. For those whose color-needs are not met by the preexisting options, PS will also offer custom color options in both material types.

Whatever your furniture needs, PS is committed to providing a solution. Müm’s upholstery, while ascetically pleasing, assists in providing that solution. From fabric to vinyl, the upholstery will withstand and stand out through countless spills, accidents, and crises. Each option has something unique to offer the consumer.

PS Furniture is committed to offering furniture solutions. That is why Müm is COM compliant, to allow for Müm to fit every consumer and designer’s space needs. It is our hope that through a wide range of upholstery options offered across the Müm line, every consumer will be able to walk away satisfied.

Now that we’ve all been introduced to Müm and the various implementations of touchdown seating in general, its time to take a look at the history of this little “perch”. Müm was originally developed by our collaborative design partners at Union Design, an industrial design firm based in East Greenville, Pennsylvania. For over 18 years Union Design has provided product solutions to various clients on a global scale.

Müm, was originally developed as Mesa. The concept was that, like natural mesas that occur across the American southwest, Müm functions to break up the modern open space of work environments. From classrooms, to conference spaces, hotel lobbies and more, Müm rise above the plain of the open work environment. Union Design is the creative arm of Union Design whose goal is to design innovative products that are unique in aesthetic and function, with the endgame of licensing those designs to a select few manufacturers. Müm is one of those innovative products, and PS one of those manufacturers. This dynamic seat has five different bottom modules that let you choose to rock, rolls or be stationary.

Now that we know what Müm is and where it came from, we have to ask: where is it going? Jeff Theesfield, partner at Union Design, sees Müm as a “perch” seating solution in areas many would never immediately imagine. Studies have demonstrated that children with special needs benefit immensely from increased mobility. The ability to move around, without the constraints of a typical desk and chair setup, allows children to relax and focus on their studies. Mum is space-economical and portable, designed to be moved to facilitate greater collaboration. It’s no wonder then, that Müm recently won gold in the 2016 “Best of Neocon” category of Education Solutions.

While Müm continues to prove itself as a well conceived and designed piece of furniture, more functions and settings will continue to make themselves known.

Müm is the newest addition to PS Furniture’s range of “Furniture for Flexible Spaces”. Müm is part of a new category of seating, called “touchdown” or “perch” seating.

“Touchdown” seating is designed for short interval seating, literally “taking a seat”. Two design elements make Müm unique. One is a choice of rocking or rolling bases, inviting the person to move while seated. The second is its amazing portability. Grab Müm’s leather handle and carry your Müm to anywhere you want to sit.

Müm is designed around a set of modular components. Müm is available in five different bottom modules in two different heights. Whether you are looking for a seat that rocks, rolls, or is simply stationary, there’s a Müm for you.

Touchdown and perch seating options have recently begun to grow in popularity and Müm is the best in its class, having won a “Best of Neocon” award in 2016.

For those of you intrigued by this newest trend in seating, here are a few illustrations where touchdown seating can offer the perfect furniture solution.

  • Touchdown seating, and Müm specifically, is perfect for the modern open office layout. These space-economical, portable seats can be used to fill open areas and facilitate a more dynamic group work environment. With rocking or rolling bottoms, Müm is perfect for high energy office environments.
  • Müm is the ideal for schools as well! Touchdown seating is already incredibly popular among educators as the small, mobile designs allow for the freedom of motion that kids want. Here again, Müm’s rocking or rolling motion is a great fit.
  • The last example of space where touchdown seating works is hotel lobbies or breakfast buffet areas. Travelers, business people, and vacationers alike are all on the go, so is Müm!
