A Visit to Herman Miller's Design Archives

. Thursday, August 26, 2010

Lish Dorset takes us along for a visit to Herman Miller's Design Archives.  This is a true time capsule of design history: untouched Alexander Girard fabrics, vintage advertisements by George Nelson and Associates, original blueprints, and of course amazing furniture.  Check out the seat cushion on the George Nelson MAA chair, and right beside it, is that a red suede upholstered Eames DCW?

The most interesting photos are of the original molds for both the George Nelson DAF chair and the Eames Armshell, which should dispel any myths that they are no longer in Herman Miller's possession.

All photos by Lish Dorset via craftzine, thanks Elke for the link.
