The world’s largest office furniture company has chosen Tsunami Axis as their only certified dealer in Scotland.
Acclaimed US design firm MillerKnoll, formed last year through Herman Miller’s acquisition of US rival Knoll for $1.8bn (£1.5bn), has made Tsunami Axis one of of its first authorized dealers in Europe. Based in London, Tsunami Axis opened its first Scottish office in Edinburgh in 2010, followed by Glasgow in 2020.
In Scotland, Tsunami Axis provide specialist design and furniture support to a range of global companies in sectors such as law and engineering. He also works with a growing number of up-and-coming technology companies.
Aidan Robertson, Northern UK director for Tsunami Axis, said the deal will allow the company to enter new markets, with education being a key target.

“While we had worked with what was Herman Miller for a number of successful years, there was no guarantee that we would have such a strong relationship with the company following its acquisition of Knoll and subsequent expansion,” said Mr. Robertsons.
“To have Tsunami Axis selected as one of the few MillerKnoll certified dealers and in fact the only one in Scotland is a testament to our staff and service delivery, of which we are very proud.”
Based in Michigan and dating back to 1905, Herman Miller generated worldwide revenues of nearly $2.5bn (£2.1bn) in 2021. Based in Pennsylvania, Knoll began trading in 1938 and focuses on sales of office furniture and systems.
