Good Design: Stories From Herman Miller
July 13 - October 6, 2013
Holding a unique position among furniture manufacturers for having cultivated the talents of a large number of modernist designers, Herman Miller has produced a significant number of pieces that are now considered icons of industrial design. This exhibition explores the behind-the-scenes process in designing for form and function. Featuring drawings, models, prototypes, photographs, oral histories and original objects, this collection unveils the problems and innovative solutions in creating art with a purpose.
