Herman Miller Nelson Thin Edge Bed
The process of bringing the Nelson Thin Edge Bed (1954) back into production began at the Herman Miller Archives, where engineers carefully studied vintage pieces and original drawings.
Herman Miller Aeron Chair
When Herman Miller’s Aeron Chair was originally launched in 1994, by designers Don Chadwick and Bill Stumpf, it was unlike anyone had ever seen as it changed the way people sat. But, times have changed since its initial launch year; so the modern office chair should too.
Knoll Wassily Chair
Some designs never age, and the Wassily Chair by Knoll is the perfect case study in this brand of timelessness. Framed in tubular steel, it's a characteristic creation of designer Marcel Breuer, who became intrigued with this material after purchasing his first bicycle.
Herman Miller Distil Desk
Designer Todd Bracher approaches his work by studying how people interact with objects. “I try to capture what’s meaningful in that exchange,” he explains.
Knoll Barcelona Chair
When Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was chosen to create the furnishings for the German Pavilion at the 1929 International Exhibition in Barcelona, he designed an iconic chair that many may not realize was born with royal roots.
Herman Miller Nelson Saucer Pendant Lamp
Architect George Nelson, who was Herman Miller’s design director from 1945 to 1972, once said, “Every truly original idea seems to find its most important expression in a chair.” And then he blew the doors off lighting design.

Knoll Girard Table
Designed in 1948 for Knoll, the unique free form shape of the Girard Tables holds a silhouette distinctive to mid-century modern classics: clean lines merged with organic shapes. Legs are cold-roll steel tubes with medal welding in black powder coat.
Eames Molded Plastic Dowel-Leg Side Chair (DSW)
The unmistakable Eames Molded Plastic chair takes on a different life with each of its base offerings.
Knoll 1966 Collection Porcelain Serving Cart
Craving furniture that could stand up to the salty environment of her seaside home in Florida, Florence Knoll called on Richard Schultz to create “a decent set of outdoor furniture made out of materials that won’t rust or corrode.” That was in 1962, and Schultz spent the next four years designing...
Vitra Nelson Ball Clock
The Ball Clock (1949) was the first of more than 150 clocks designed by George Nelson Associates for the Howard Miller Clock Company, which sold them from 1949 into the 1980s.
