HermanMiller.com Launches

Monday, June 8th, 2009

We are excited to launch the new Herman Miller web site. We crafted the digital strategy for the site along with tools and resources for architects and designers. There is a new image library, videos, configurator, and a blog called “Discover.” The design and development was a massive effort and continues to be amazing to work on.

We’re excited to start working with the LA Phil on a new site for Gustavo Dudamel, the 28-year-old Venezuelan wunderkind, who will take over Esa-Pekka Salonon’s duties as Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. After watching the documentary The Promise of Music, we know why the LA Phil snatched him up. He was also recently named TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People.

And that’s how they got the name “setu” which in Hindi means “bridge.” The chair was designed by Studio 7.5 from Berlin. Check out how it was made:

Woo-hoo!

Jon drew some pretty pictures in our conference room. They’re pink and orange because these were the only paint markers we could find at the store.
