Herman Miller History
Founded in 1923 and recognized today throughout the world as an innovator in office and residential furniture design, Herman Miller has been ranked since 1986 among the top ten in Fortune Magazine’s annual list of the 500 most admired companies. Their pioneering research into producing environmentally responsible furniture has earned them GreenGuard Indoor Air Quality certification for most of their products. Aesthetically, many of Herman Miller’s iconic designs, particularly from the 1940s and 1950s, are valuable collector’s items and on permanent display in museums such as the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the Smithsonian Institution.
In 1933, new furniture designs created by Herman Miller designer Gilbert Rohde exhibiting the smooth lines and unembellished shapes of the emerging mid-century modern furniture style were exhibited at the Chicago World’s Fair. In 1944, Rohde’s successor George Nelson designed such enduring icons as the Platform bench, and was famously responsible for teaming the company with such influential design artists as Alexander Girard, Isamu Noguchi and Charles and Ray Eames. Charles Eames, widely regarded as a genius in contemporary furniture design, produced one of Herman Miller’s most successful products in 1956, the elegant Eames Lounge chair. In 1994, Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf introduced a new office chair called Aeron (derived from the word aeration, which describes how the mesh suspension promotes comfort), which became an immediate worldwide success and earned a spot in the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) as well. Today, Herman Miller continues to attract world-famous designers like Jeff Weber, Jerome Caruso, the Studio 7.5 Design Team in Berlin, Yves Béhar, Mark Goetz and many more.
If the purpose of design is to solve problems, and the relationship between design and business is synergistic, then Herman Miller today continues to be in the vanguard of design as a fundamental part of strategic planning.
"Good design doesn't have to be expensive."— Jeff Weber
Designed by Jeff Weber of Studio Weber + Associates, the goal of the lively Caper chair (in both its desk version and four-legged stacker) was to provide affordable seating that's also comfortable and easy to move. Based on universal design principles, the result is a chair that accommodates a wide diversity of people and the variety of tasks that they perform.
Weber believes that design is "the connective tissue" between people and the environment, and that the quality of that design—whether of a building or a chair—has a profound effect on quality of life. By "using standard materials in novel ways", Weber says, the Caper Chair achieves its high level of performance and comfort.
Weber also believes that good design doesn’t have to be expensive.
"Too much good design seems expensive. I wanted to break that cliché."— Jeff Weber
