Herman Miller has a long and illustrious history with designers like Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson. It’s a relationship that casts a long shadow – one that I think often masks the extraordinary stable of contemporary designers the company currently works with. Among the new guard is Swiss-born, US-based Yves Behar. His work for Herman Miller includes the Leaf (below) and Ardea light. There’s another design of Behar’s that will be released later this year – but I can’t tell you about that yet!
The Huffington Post recently announced a new column called Design Thursdays and the first post focused on Behar and his work at Yerba Buena. The Eames hack highchair below is part of the design exhibition at Yerba Buena. The exhibition runs til October 3.
