Stories from Herman Miller
On View January 14, 2012 - March 4, 2012
Most exhibitions celebrating modern design usually showcase the end products: furniture or functional objects, for example. However, the exhibit Good Design: Stories from Herman Miller chooses to focus on the design process that brought these masterpieces into being.
The exhibition presents preliminary drawings and sketches, art work, interactive media and concept models as well as original works of decorative art and furnishings. Good Design examines the creation and evolution of many masterpieces of 20th and 21st century contemporary design produced by Herman Miller and designed by such artists as Gilbert Rohde, Ray and Charles Eames, Isamu Noguchi, George Nelson, Robert Probst and others.
The exhibition has been created and is circulated by the Muskegon Museum of Art, Muskegon, Michigan in association with The Henry Ford, Dearborn, Michigan. It is supported by a grant from Herman Miller, Inc.
