“A permanent collection designed to meet fully the requirements for modern living.”
The enduring designs of the HermanMiller Collection strike a balance between seemingly contradictory ideas: aspiration and accessibility, sculpture and engineering, elegance and informality, beauty and comfort. Not the least of these is its delicate balance of craft and industrial processes. But it remains grounded in the quality and value produced by the craftsmanship, thoughtfulness, and individual human touches of the workers who assemble many of its pieces by hand.
These details make a difference. And as Charles Eames said, “The details are not details. They make the product.”
Materials in the Collection amplify its design philosophy of elegant pragmatism and industrial craft. State-of-the-art Outdoor Weave builds on technology pioneered with the Aeron Chair’s Pellicle suspension fabric. Stone selections originate from North American quarries with ties to historic American design. MCL leather options find inspiration in the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman’s “warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.”
