About Devon Torrey, Performance Specialist, Herman Miller
It’s one thing to design a beautiful space—it’s another to do it with beauty and health in mind. For Herman Miller’s Devon Torrey, that’s a skillset he’s been honing for years, and a crucial part of his role as General Manger leading the team at the brand-new Herman Miller Seating Store in the Hudson Yards district of NYC.

From educating customers on the significance of ergonomics to helping them select the perfect furniture for their body and space, Torrey is a crucial part of Herman Miller’s efforts to help customers discover how to bring the quality and expertise of Herman Miller into their homes.

With over six years of experience in the design and luxury retail industry, it seems fitting that Torrey not only helped open the very first direct-to-consumer retail store for Herman Miller in 2016, but is now at the helm of the next iteration of Herman Miller experiences. With a degree in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Charlotte and previous experience at CB2 and Mroz Office, Torrey’s strong background in design and client management has placed him at the forefront of Herman Miller’s ever growing retail division.
