The Herman Miller Pop Up Shop officially closed its doors in New York City late yesterday afternoon — but not without a little fanfare first. On the evening of Friday, June 29, House Industries type foundry and Metropolis magazine joined us to throw an after-work finale party to say one last goodbye to the big city.
In addition to general merrymaking, Metropolis paid tribute to the of relaunch Alexander Girard’s textiles. House Industries displayed artwork and artifacts from its various Herman Miller, Eames, and Girard projects, and brought along one of the most popular events of the night: a mobile screen-printing rig from the Awesome Dudes print shop. Guests kept the line long for the chance to have the Dudes print one of several custom House Industries screen designs (or combo thereof) on a complimentary canvas tote.
Thanks to those who attended the celebration, and thanks to everyone who stopped by our temporary shop in Soho during its nearly two-month run. Here’s hoping you had as much fun as we did. Read more
