Herman Miller Collection

The standard for modern American furniture design has been established and continues to be maintained by the Michigan based company Herman Miller.

The Herman Miller Collection includes familiar and well-loved pieces from the company's early collaborations with the giants of 20th design, many reintroduced after decades or freshly reinterpreted with new materials and manufacturing technologies. Names like Eames, Nelson, Noguchi, Girard, Bennett, and Burdick are a foundation for the program.

Rooted in Herman Miller's archives of timeless classics, the Collection takes its cues from George Nelson, Herman Miller's Director of Design from 1945 - 1972, who, in the Herman Miller 1952 catalog, wrote of the importance of continuing the creation of a permanent collection "designed to meet fully the requirements for modern living."
