Herman Miller Collection

December 6th, 2010






What a beautiful yet small collection of Herman Miller’s graphic design from the 1930s to the 1970s. George Nelson, John Massey, Charles and Ray Eames, Tomoko Miho, Steve Frykholm, Donald Gwaltney, all contributed to the success of Herman Miller and its contemporary design. George Nelson actually designed the Herman Miller logo in 1947. He also designed one of the company’s first manufacturing facilities in 1958.

These were all of the Herman Miller items that I could find but if you’re daring, sift through this pool.

    Rick, that is quite amazing. I would love to get my hands on some of the archived material to post. If you know any way for that to happen, it would be amazing.
