American Beauty

Customisable classics of furniture design

The name HERMAN MILLER is synonymous with modern design. The renowned American furniture brand emerged as an innovator during the country’s heyday of manufacturing, leading the way by adopting brand-new techniques and materials which are now found commonly across the industry, and in doing so heralding the modern American furniture movement.

Key to this was the company’s carefully chosen collaborators: its work with some of the world’s leading designers over the last century resulted in genuine classics of modern industrial design. Legendary pieces include the Noguchi table, designed by Japanese-American artist and industrial designer Isamu Noguchi, which effortlessly blends art and design and remains a sought-after piece today, plus the work of Yves Béhar, George Nelson and more. But Herman Miller is probably best known for its extensive oeuvre with Charles and Ray Eames, with the highly recognisable Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman, Shell Chair and multiple Molded Plywood Chairs forming the core of its collection — they’re such design classics that some have since made it to MoMA.

While any Herman Miller piece would make a great choice to accent a new home or to update your current look, you can go one better: Lane Crawford is now offering an exclusive personalisation service on selected Eames pieces, with colour and covering options from leading lights Paul Smith and Maharam.
