Founded by D.J. De Pree, Herman Miller—under the guidance of Gilbert Rhode—pioneered modern furniture design. By the mid-20th century, its work with legendary designers George Nelson, Charles and Ray Eames, and Alexander Girard yielded many classics of modern design. 
As the business grew, it added a research focus to its problem-solving design, which yielded innovative, award-winning work chairs by Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick, Jeff Weber, and Yves Béhar. Today, the spirit of innovation and collaboration continues to drive the global company forward. 
In addition to the enduring designs that form its foundation, Herman Miller also offers solutions from partners and top designers who share its values. Learn more at
