Inspiration is Only a Chair Away

Herman Miller is taking a ‘seat’ on the need to show the next generation that a little imagination—plus a little application—can go a long way. In collaboration with Operation Design, an organization that works to put students in direct contact with design professionals to put their creative juices flowing, the office furniture solutions company is sponsoring Eames Inspiration, an online auction.
From May 11 through June 1, a collection of Herman Miller Eames Moulded Plywood Lounge Chairs that have been decorated by famous street and graffiti artists will be featured in Barneys New York (Madison and 61st Street) storefronts. The one-of-a-kind chairs will then be auctioned online. Visit for more info and images of these artistic chairs.
