Here’s some great Herman Miller photos for your enjoyment!
We’re down to the last few days of the Herman Miller Sale here at Vastu and all this week, we’ve shared some of our favorite Herman Miller pieces. I think we can all agree that Herman Miller’s designers are all extremely talented and many of their designs will truly stand the test of time as stylish, iconic pieces.
To wrap up the week, here are Vastu’s Herman Miller Favorites:
From Ray, the Eames Aluminum Group chairs:
“Sleek, sophisticated, comfortable, instantly recognizable and absolutely timeless.”
From Eric, the Noguchi Table:
“…it is still considered a modern icon of design despite having been created over 60 years ago…”
From Sarita, the Eames Molded Plastic chair:
“You can create so many different looks, it’s wonderful!”
From Jason, the Nelson Basic Cabinet series:
“In urban interior design, I love when pieces are multi-functional.”
If you haven’t done so yet, stop by the showroom this weekend and say hi. We’d love to show you what we have from Herman Miller.
Today’s Herman Miller Favorite comes from one of Vastu’s designers and co-owners, Eric Kole.
Eric’s favorite is the Noguchi Table. Designed in the 1940s, the Noguchi table is made up of a wooden base composed of two identical curved wood pieces, with a heavy plate glass top. In 1947, the Herman Miller catalog described the table as “sculpture-for-use”.
Here’s what Eric had to say about the coffee table:
“While I love the table for its beauty and simplicity, and the fact that it is still considered a modern icon of design despite having been created over 60 years ago, it’s my favorite because of the designer: landscape architect Isamu Noguchi. I have long admired his works, particularly the outdoor sculptures and meditative gardens.”
“Several of his designs, like the table, are instantly recognizable of course, however it is the breadth of his work that I find most impressive: he designed lighting, sculpture, furniture, indoor and outdoor gardens, portrait busts and even theatre sets and costumes. The Noguchi Museum is well-worth a quick subway ride to Long Island City on your next trip to NYC!”
