    Product Overview

    Distil Desk

    Equally appropriate in a small office or work room, the Distil Desk takes work seriously without taking over. Designer Todd Bracher ensures this equilibrium by refining the idea of a desk to its essence. With solid wood legs, eased edges, a molded plywood top, and refreshingly honest answers to handling wires and storage, this desk is approachable, physically and aesthetically.

    What Is Needed—Nothing Less, Nothing More
    With the Distil Desk, designer Todd Bracher has distilled the desk down to its most elemental form, consisting only of what is essential to its purpose—a horizontal surface, simple storage, and honest wire management.

    Making the Complicated, Simple
    Distil Desk has simplified storage, cleverly designed to keep devices and chargers close at hand but out of sight. The vertical box can be mounted on the desk’s right or left side and is intended for effortless paperwork and file storage. The horizontal storage box can also be mounted on either side of the desk and boasts a removable internal drawer that can double as a desktop “in box.” Optimize it to store external hard drives or mobile electronics.

    Power and Assembly Easily Tamed
    Distil also has a simple solution to wires and cords, channeling them the length of the desk through cut-outs in the cross stretchers. Assembly, too, is simple, requiring just one tool and a few minutes.

    Care & Maintenance

      Care & Maintenance

      With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.

      The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.

      Wood & Veneer

      This includes Herman Miller products finished with wood veneer or recut wood veneer, except the oiled Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman with Rosewood, Oiled Walnut, or Oiled Santos Palisander veneer unless specifically noted.

      Normal Cleaning
      Dust regularly with a slightly damp, soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe dry with a dry, soft cloth in the direction of the wood grain. Spills should be immediately wiped up with a damp cloth.

      Once a month
      Clean the surface with a soft cloth dampened with a quality cleaner formulated for wood furniture. Wipe the surface in the direction of the wood grain to remove dirt and fingerprints. Wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth.

      Twice a year
      Apply a good quality furniture polish with a soft cloth. Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners or polishes. Also, do not use polishes containing waxes or abrasives, or polishes that are oil based.

      Stains
      Herman Miller veneers meet strict testing standards for resistance to wear, light, stains, water, and pressure. To reduce the risk of damage, take some precautions: Use coasters for glasses and mugs. If a glass top is added to the veneer surface, be sure it rests on felt pads. Don't place a potted plant on a veneer surface unless it's in a water-tight container or in a drip tray. Don't let vinyl binders stay on a surface for very long. Use protective pads under equipment with "rubber" cushioning feet. Some chemical compounds used in the feet on office equipment, such as printers and monitor stands, may leave permanent stains or marks.

      Minor repair of water rings, stains, and scratches
      Rub the surface lightly in the direction of the wood grain using No. 000 steel wool. Apply a scratch-removing polish with a color and value that simulate the veneer. If the scratches are deep, consult a professional furniture refinisher.

      Other Damage
      Wood is susceptible to bruising and scratching from heavy office equipment, so we encourage a protective surface is placed underneath. Objects should be lifted instead of dragged across a surface. Protective pads should be used under items with a rough bottom, like pottery. Denting, caused by extreme pen pressure when writing, can also damage veneer. Use desk pads or some other protection where a lot of paperwork is done. Sunlight can damage veneer as well, so veneer surfaces should not be in direct sunlight. To help a surface age evenly, users can periodically move items on their desks so that the entire surface is exposed to an even amount of light over time. In addition to light, extremely high or low humidity is a damaging environmental factor. Herman Miller suggests maintaining a relative humidity of 35-65 percent.
