Herman Miller has led in the modernization of the American home and workplace since Gilbert Rohde revolutionized the company with his Art Deco furniture in the 1930s. Interior installations (from the early days through the famous mid-century designs of George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames and the textile designs of Alexander Girard, and up to the later accomplishments of a new generation of designers) are shown in more than 200 color and black and white vintage photos entirely from the Herman Miller Archives. With an extensive timeline of events and furniture design introductions, this visual record captures a fascinating portion of the evolution of modern interior design. Appendices of complete product catalog reprints of the Herman Miller Collections of 1950 and 1952 plus a value guide make this volume a must for researchers, preservationists, designers, and collectors of modern interior furnishings.
Leslie Pi?a, Ph.D. has written and co-authored numerous books on decorative arts, designers, and furniture, including Fifties Glass, Fifties Furniture, and Classic Herman Miller. She is director of the Historic Preservation program at Ursuline College, in Pepper Pike, Ohio.
