Good Design: Stories from Herman Miller Exhibit
February 6-April 25, 2010
Herman Miller, Inc. revolutionized the way we work
Based in tiny Zeeland, Michigan, the company gave the world some of the most iconic objects of the century: Charles and Ray Eames’s molded plywood Lounge Chair, George Nelson’s Marshmallow Sofa and Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick’s Aeron Chair. Those works – and dozens of others – are at the heart of this exhibit. For these legendary designers, it wasn’t enough for furniture to be beautiful. It had to be practical. It had to make the workplace a better place.

Work by Herman Miller designers such as Gilbert Rohde, George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames have long been integrated into our furniture exhibit. This exhibition focuses on a number of perspectives on the Herman Miller achievement — an achievement rooted in a combination of extraordinary vision and practical realization. The company’s commitment to addressing real design problems — always with an insistence on achievable, affordable and durable solutions — continues to this day.

Our connection to Herman Miller runs even deeper than that. We are the lead institution in The Herman Miller Consortium, a group of 13 art and historical institutions that share approximately 800 artifacts collected by Herman Miller Inc.
