About

George Nelson Herman Miller, Executive Office Group (EOG) Series circa 1962 Lacquered walnut, steel and chrome. Measures: 80.75 wide x 18.5 deep x 43 inch tall Customized for a client, this large credenza boasts storage more akin to a desk and return. This model is deep, has two tiers and can have the legs removed if required, reducing the height by 6.25 inches. It is also finished on the back and so can free stand in a room if required. A storage cabinet and door on each side, the far right has an adjustable shelf. This wall storage centre also has a slide out shelf for use with a typewriter, and two additional "push and pull" white formica toped shelves for work. Below these are regular drawers plus a file drawer with built in bars for file storage. Both the two-tier tops are in solid walnut - not laminate. Inserted back in lacquered gun metal grey (nearly black in color) . Small cut out hole exists for cords mounting through the unit from behind. This unit is heavy, well constructed and very sturdy. Chrome lined above drawers is brushed finish. While it has been entirely refinished, still a minor imperfection exists to the middle surface with a small darkened area - see last photo..

About Herman Miller (Manufacturer)

No other business of its kind did more than the Herman Miller Furniture Company to introduce modern design into American homes. Working with legendary designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson and Alexander Girard, the Zeeland, Michigan-based firm fostered some of the boldest expressions of what we now call Mid-Century Modern style. In doing so, Herman Miller produced some of the most beautiful, iconic and, one can even say, noblest furniture of the past seven decades.


     Founded in 1923, Herman Miller was originally known for grand historicist bedroom suites: heavily ornamented wood furniture that appealed to a high-minded, wealthier clientele. The company—named for its chief financial backer—began to suffer in the early 1930s as the Great Depression hit, and D. J. De Pree, the company’s CEO, feared bankruptcy. In 1932, aid came in the form of Gilbert Rohde, a self-taught furniture designer who had traveled widely in Europe, absorbing details of the Art Deco movement and other modernist influences. After persuading De Pree that the growing middle-class required smaller, lighter household furnishings, Rohde set a new course for Herman Miller, creating sleek chairs, tables and cabinetry that were the essence of the Streamline Moderne style.


     Rohde died suddenly in 1944. The following year, De Pree turned to George Nelson, an architect who had written widely about modern furniture design. Under Nelson’s leadership, Herman Miller would embrace new technologies and materials and audacious biomorphic forms. Some of the pieces the company produced are now emblems of 20th century American design, including the Eames lounge chair and ottoman and Nelson’s Marshmallow sofa and Coconut chair. As you can see on these pages, such instantly recognizable furnishings have become timeless—staples of a modernist décor; striking, offbeat notes in traditional environments.
