You Can Now Buy Herman Miller's Iconic Picnic Poster

When graphic designer Steve Frykholm joined Herman Miller as its first in-house designer in 1970, he was immediately tasked with creating a poster for the company summer picnic—and boy did he overachieve. Over two decades, Frykholm would translate this seemingly unglamorous assignment into 20 strikingly vibrant posters animating all the joys of the season (Watermelon! Lemonade! Ice cream!), some of which have made it into the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. But, get this: recently, the one that started it all, the now-iconic Sweet Corn poster depicting a blown-up pair of teeth chowing down on a cob of corn, went back into production, and, as of today, will be available exclusively at SHOP Cooper Hewitt, the store at the newly-revamped design museum.
