While all the action may seem to be centered squarely on New York there are a number of online events all of you can participate in. Check out the George Nelson 5-drawer cabinet with door that we are auctioning off on EBAY. It’s sitting at $475 right now.
Also on EBAY you’ll find Operation Design’s painted Eames molded plywood chairs. I spotted them in the window at Barneys last night and if I can just find the right cord I can get the pics off my camera and onto the blog! (If anyone is here at ICFF with a cord that links a Canon camera to a Mac feel free to stop by.)

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.
