View Slideshow

Herman Miller fans can finally get their hands on the renowned design brand’s highly sought-after vintage posters. The launch comprises 15 iconic designs released between 1949 and 1979, from product ads to brand nostalgia, aka their “greatest hits,” from celebrated graphic designers, like Irving Harper, Linda Powell, George Nelson & Associates, Steve Frykholm, Phillip Mitchell and Armin Hofmann. “Reintroducing Herman Miller’s archival graphics as a collection has been a long-time dream of the brand,” says Amy Auscherman, Herman Miller’s Director of Global Archives and Brand Heritage. “We closely referenced examples from the Herman Miller Archives to faithfully recreate these iconic pieces of graphic design. From color matching to paper selection, no detail was too small for consideration. It’s exciting to now have this work recontextualized as art objects and accessible to design fans everywhere!” So, if an Eames Lounge Chair is out of budget or you just want to own a piece of design history, you can purchase the posters now via hermanmiller.com.
