Since the shopping season is now upon us, Eames, Nelson and Noguchi fans should plan a pilgrimage to New York to pay homage in the recently opened Herman Miller flagship store on Park Avenue. It is Herman Miller’s the first retail store in North America. The two-level store is packed with the classic designs by Eames, Nelson, Noguchi and Alexander Girard. I recently stopped into the small store in Tokyo, where these pictures are from. Can’t wait to see the larger store in NYC.
While Herman Miller has had various manufacturer showrooms in New York going back to the early 1940s, it never has had a large direct retail store until now. See this great timeline of Herman Miller’s history in New York.
