The Herman Miller team is gathering in New York City today in preparation for the launch of ICFF tomorrow. Look out for us at the Herman Miller stand (booth 1624). I’ll be blogging live so feel free to come over and say hello! Also look out for the painted Eames molded plywood chairs on display in the Barneys‘ windows on Madison and 61st. They’ve been re-imagined by street artists as part of the Operation Design auction – you can buy them online on EBAY.

Herman Miller and the Eames Office are two of the collaborators working on an interesting project in support of Operation Design – a not-for-profit that connects students with architects and designers. Twenty Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chairs are being worked on by street artists and will be displayed in the windows of Barneys New York from May 11. If you like what you see you’ll be able to but the chairs in online auction. Stay tuned for more information and pictures of the chairs.
