The story of Herman Miller is nothing less than the story of modern design itself--from the progressive spirit of D. J. De Pree and Gilbert Rohde to the mid-century classics of Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, and George Nelson, as well as the radical innovations of Robert Propst, Bill Stumpf, and Don Chadwick.
