DATE - 1967

In 1967 Herman Miller Inc sponsored an International Conference for thirteen of its licensees from Europe, South America, and Japan. 

Additional Information

The group, invited to meet each of Herman Miller’s three top designers, was taken first to New York City to meet George Nelson and then to Chicago and the Herman Miller corporate headquarters in Zeeland, Michigan. From there, they travel to Santa Fe, New Mexico, to meet architect and designer Alexander and Susan Gerard and then on to Los Angeles for “A Day With Charles Eames.” By then, the group had grown to seventy-five people and was invited to the Eames house for a picnic lunch and a tent on the meadow.

Everyone was given the Eames Office’s timeline with Herman Miller’s history, and after lunch, the group went to the Eames Office to see films, slideshows, and works-in-progress. However, the surprise highlight of the afternoon was a three-screen slideshow of 156 images drawn from the group’s trip across the United States. The photographers accompanying them had been secretly sending their film to the Eames Office for inclusion in the slide show.
