Finding Balance Craftsmanship

The enduring designs of the Herman Miller Collection strike a balance between seemingly contradictory ideas: aspiration and accessibility, sculpture and engineering, elegance and informality, beauty and comfort. Not the least of these is its delicate balance of craft and industrial processes. The Collection moves forward by utilizing the latest technologies and newest materials available.

But it remains grounded in the quality and value produced by the craftsmanship, thoughtfulness, and individual human touches of the workers who assemble many of its pieces by hand. These details make a difference. And as Charles Eames said, “The details are not details. They make the product.”
