For over 65 years Herman Miller has been a design leader through thick and thin, advancing both the science and the art of furniture design. Based in Zeeland, Michigan, the company pioneered modern American residential furniture in the 1930s and 1940s through its unique relationships with Gilbert Rohde, George Nelson and Charles Eames. Thirty years later, Herman Miller transformed the way office workers experience their environments by championing facility management and ergonomics. Today the company continues the tradition of commissioning distinguished designers including Ayse Birsel, Bill Stumpf and Frank Gehry. It has reduced the costs of high style furniture and made it widely accessible, while simultaneously insisting on design excellence, innovation and integrity in all of its products.
