Here are some behind the scene photos from a shoot we just directed for an integrated product launch.
We had a lot of fun using this big camera.
And this little one too.
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.
Herman Miller works for a better world around you, check out this brand video. BTW – Herman Miller really does bottle their own honey!
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.
Check out Herman Miller’s newest chair: setu. It features a kinetic spine that bends and flexes with your every move. The spine is made out of one piece which bridges the base with chair’s back. 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:
David and Jon got to meet Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons today! Jon gave him a copy of his magical book, Pens are my Friends.
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.
