Herman Miller Showroom

EH_HMp010

1950

Coinciding with the introduction of the Eames Wire Chair, the Office redesigned the Herman Miller Los Angeles showroom to include the new Eames collection, new furniture from George Nelson, and fabrics by designer Alexander Girard.

As in past installations, the furniture was surrounded by a variety of objects—a Mexican piñata, a wooden sculpture of a whale from the Pacific Northwest, a wall of seed packets purchased at a local nursery, shells, Indian kites and reels, desert flora, flowers, plants, and table accessories.

On one wall, the entire Herman Miller catalog was mounted page by page.  As in other installations and exhibitions, the objective was not to show actual room settings but to create an “attitude” of home or office by the use of objects and images.
