A Nice Day for a Picnic


In 1970, Steven Frykholm was working as the in-house graphic designer for the furniture manufacturer Herman Miller, Inc., when a company vice-president stopped by his desk.  Every summer, the VP said, Herman Miller hosted a company picnic.  Perhaps Frykholm would make up a poster for the event?

PICNIC!


"Yay! Yay! PICNIC! PICNIC! PICNIC!" was my immediate reaction. This was before learning that the name of this piece is Picnic Flatware!
