Herman Miller is providing its customers with an exclusive program intended to enrich their connection to the world’s most renowned product designs. Called Herman Miller Select, the program offers an opportunity to own a limited edition product released once a year with a distinct characteristic for collector appeal.
The company’s first Select product release will include the Eames(R) Molded Plywood Lounge Chair, fashioned with a luscious walnut veneer and refined leather hairhide upholstered seat and back. Gregg Vander Kooi, manager of Herman Miller’s Classics, notes that the Select program was born out of the increasing demand from collectors for classic products with unique enhancements.
“Charles and Ray Eames often experimented with different finishes and materials for their designs. This version of the chair was offered in the 50′s and 60′s and we thought this would be a great way to allow our customers to own a similar share of design history.”
If you want one you better act fast! Only 500 chairs will be available for this inaugural year from the company’s global network of dealerships and retailers. Each piece sold will be numbered for authenticity and packaged with a signed and numbered print of the Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair by Nick Merrick of the famed Hedrich Blessing studio.
