Herman Miller flagship in New York City

Are you a Herman Miller obsessive?

The purveyor of iconic midcentury modern furniture is opening a new exhibition celebrating 100 years of design and culture at their New York City flagship—just in time for NYCxDesign and ICFF. Starting on Sunday, May 19, design aesthetes can visit the showroom at 251 Park Avenue South in the Flatiron District to view works by Ray and Charles Eames, Alexander Girard, George Nelson, and so much more.

Called “A Way of Living,” the expansive exhibition will cover the second floor of the showroom and be open all summer. It will feature a wide range of Herman Miller’s archival materials—including furniture, posters, and textiles—and 10 milestone chapters for the Michigan-based company.

The exhibition shares the same name as Herman Miller’s upcoming book, which gives a comprehensive history of the brand over 600 pages. The book will be available on May 29 at the showroom and on HermanMiller.com.
