Herman Miller Picnic Posters: From Aba to MoMA

by Randall Braaksma

Steve Frykholm with his Herman Miller picnic posters

As head of Herman Miller’s creative crew, Steve Frykholm has shaped the company’s image for nearly 40 years and won plenty of recognition for it. But his love of poster making began with a stint in Aba, Nigeria, where he worked in the Peace Corps. The journey his posters took eventually landed them in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Bardot, Hepburn, Monroe
Carnegie would like to introduce Bardot, Hepburn, and Monroe to its signature line of upholstery. Featuring designs inspired by
the sleek sophistication and glamour of classic film stars, these new textiles were created in response to the growing need for polyurethane upholstery that is as versatile, durable, and cleanable as vinyl. Bardot, Hepburn, and Monroe reflect current
design and color trends, making them suitable for nearly any environment including healthcare, hospitality, retail, and more.

Bardot, Hepburn, and Monroe are antimony, heavy metal, and phthalate-free and feature low VOCs. Of the water and raw
materials used in their production, 99% is recycled. Like other polyurethanes, these textiles are an ideal solution for interior
spaces that demand durability, ease of care, and high performance.

Work/Life Balance Is Gen Y’s Top Priority

Work/Life Balance Is Gen Y’s Top Priority


By Christine MacLean

worklife_geny_sept_maclean

For Dmitri Brown, the whole idea of work/life balance unfolded gradually. When he graduated from college in 2004, he was headed for a career in corporate law. He went to Maine for a year to study for the LSAT and snowboard. But two funny things happened on the way to law school: He figured out he didn’t want to be a lawyer and he didn’t need a lot of money to live on. That was his first a-ha.



His second came after a move to North Carolina, where he taught surfing and discovered his true professional calling, photography. There, he realized he could make enough to live on and still have control over his time. When the surf is up, he can usually get there. “At some point, I molded my being around that flexibility,” he says. Now he can’t imagine a job that isn’t flexible.



Brown (who is single) isn’t alone, according to a survey of 60,000 members of Gen Y (those born between the late 1970s and late 1990s) about the most important characteristics of an entry-level job. Work/life balance was their top characteristic, above meaningful work and pay.


Is it because they are too young to know the trade-off they are making? I doubt it. Brown, who doesn’t have health insurance, recently chipped a molar. He can’t afford the dental work but “this hasn’t made me rethink anything,” he says.


In previous recessions, work/life balance has dropped on the list. But cutbacks, once used only as a last resort, have become business as usual. Gen Y watched their parents lose their “secure” eight-to-five jobs and maybe they’ve decided that if nothing is for sure, they may as well build time for fun into their lives. Some people call Gen Y selfish. I call them smart.



Metropolis Magazine’s 2010 Next Generation® Design Competition, “ONE Design FIX for the FUTURE” is calling for entries. With this year’s theme, they’re looking for one design fix – in a product, a workplace, a city, a building, a landscape or wherever – that “in scale or as inspiration, can improve our future.”



9036117

So if you’re a designer who has been in business less than 10 years – or a design student – why not enter? Just think: Your idea might not only win, but with the $10,000 prize in seed money, you might actually watch it come to fruition.



The magazine started their Next Generation Design Competition in 2003 “to promote activism, social involvement and entrepreneurship in young designers.” (Note: It doesn’t matter how old you are, Metropolis only cares that you are new to the field. Their goal is to encourage fresh ideas from people who have not yet had the time or opportunity to make their mark.)


They say the diversity of past entries has been “stunning,” ranging from building design to waste disposals to energy solutions.


5524950

Last year’s winners created a unique way to harness wind energy. Check it out.



Herman Miller has been a sponsor of the contest for five years because it fits so well with our long-time sustainability philosophy, started back in the 1950s, when founder D.J. De Pree declared that the company would be “good stewards of the environment.”


One environmental “fix” Herman Miller came up with was to devote 50 percent of a facility’s property to green space. Over time, one fix led to several and now the company is on its way to becoming 100 percent sustainable by the year 2020.


Herman Miller's Design Yard facility

See what one fix can do?


So if you’ve ever sat around the conference table with colleagues or the coffee table with friends and asked the question, “Why hasn’t anybody come up with a way to…,” maybe this is the inspiration you need to do it yourself. But don’t dally. Entries must be in by January 29, 2010. So think big – and fixate on solutions.

Susan S. Szenasy is Editor in Chief of Metropolis, the award-winning magazine of architecture, culture, and design. Strong in her belief that architecture and design are humanist activities, she has led the magazine since 1986 through decades of landmark design journalism to domestic and international recognition.

Susan’s training was on the job — beginning with Interiors magazine she rose quickly from editorial assistant to senior editor until being named chief editor of Residential Interiors (a since bygone offshoot of Interiors). Today she is recognized as a preeminent authority on sustainability and design.

Throughout 2007, Susan toured the United States with the Metropolis film, Site Specific: The Legacy of Regional Modernism. She visited over 30 architecture firms to screen the documentary and lead discussions on environmental sustainability and the historic preservation of modern buildings.

Susan’s other on-screen appearances include offering her expertise on the Brad Pitt-narrated PBS series design e2 (2006) and e2 design (2007).

Susan’s commitment to design is also a commitment to educate the future generation of designers. She was a long time professor at New York’s Parsons School of Design and is a visiting lecturer at universities across the U.S. In 2007 Susan moderated Architecture 2030’s influential 2010 Imperative: Global Emergency Teach In, an educational gathering for the technological age, that was web-cast worldwide to a viewership of a quarter million students, professionals, and the environmentally concerned public.

Susan has played a primary role in organizing many popular professional conferences. These include the annual ICFF Metropolis Design Entrepreneurs Conference, Tropical Green, Wonderbrands, Wonderbrands West, Net@Work, Business UnUsual, and Teaching Green.

Susan has authored several books including The Home and Light, and sits on the boards of the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (formerly FIDER), FIT Interior Design, the Center for Architecture Advisory Board, the Landscape Architecture Foundation, and is co-founder of the post-9/11 civic group Rebuild Downtown Our Town (R.Dot). She has been honored with two International Interior Designers Association (IIDA) Presidential Commendations and is an honorary member of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). In 2008 she was awarded the Patron’s Prize as well as a Presidential Commendation by American Society of Interior Designers (ASID); and the Medallion of Honor by the Society of American Registered Architects/ New York Council (SARA/NY).

Along with METROPOLIS Publisher Horace Havemeyer III, Susan was a 2007 recipient of the Civitas August Heckscher Award for Community Service and Excellence. Susan holds an MA in Modern European History from Rutgers University, and honorary doctorates from Kendall College of Art and Design, the Art Center College of Design, and the Pacific Northwest College of Art. She lives in New York’s East Village in a small loft designed by Harry Allen, where she moved in 2001 to reduce her ecological footprint.

Herding Chairs -- Super Bowl 2009 Ad

Generation by Knoll™ to be Featured in “I'm SMaRT Ask Me Why” Campaign at Greenbuild




Generation by Knoll™ to be Featured in “I'm SMaRT Ask Me Why” Campaign at Greenbuild

November 6, 2009
NEW YORK, NY, November 6, 2009 — Generation by Knoll™ will be featured as part of the "I'm SMaRT Ask Me Why" 2009 campaign at the U.S. Green Building Council's 2009 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, the world's largest conference dedicated to green building. The conference, which will take place November 11-13 in Phoenix, AZ, brings together building and workplace professionals for educational sessions, green building tours and networking events.

The 2009 "I'm SMaRT Ask Me Why" campaign will showcase Generation by Knoll, the first task chair to earn a Sustainable Platinum rating under the SMaRT© Sustainable Product Standard. Designed for Knoll by New Zealand-based Formway Design, a recognized leader in the design of environmentally-conscious furniture, Generation was designed in accordance with the Knoll "Design for the Environment" guidelines, which define sustainable practices for the total design, development, and manufacturing of a Knoll product.

Commenting on Knoll's participation in the 2009 SMaRT campaign, Lou Newett, Knoll Environmental, Health, and Safety Manager, said: "Knoll chose SMaRT because it is consistent with our holistic approach to sustainability and considers all three criteria of the sustainability triple bottom line: environmental, social and economic impacts."

He continued, "SMaRT is a Leadership Standard with third party certification going beyond the status quo and we believe this standard is the most meaningful certification tool for sustainable products."

At Greenbuild 2009, Knoll joins Philips, Forbo Flooring, Milliken Contract, Eaton and the Alliance for Sustainable Built Environments in the "I'm SMaRT Ask Me Why" campaign.

Generation and LEED®

Generation by Knoll can help contribute to achieving the following LEED® credits: Recycled Content (2 points); Low-Emitting Materials (1 point) with its GREENGUARD Children & Schools certificationSM; Innovation in Design (1 point) with its SMaRT© certification. A point for Regional Materials (1 point) may also apply, depending on project location.

The total recycled content for the chair with arms and aluminum base is 46% and for a plastic base is 40%. Generation by Knoll contains no polyvinyl chloride (PVCs). Generation by Knoll has earned a Sustainable Platinum rating under the SMaRT© Sustainable Product Standard and GREENGUARD Children & SchoolsSM certification. An alternate version of the Generation by Knoll chair using material derived from a renewable source is in development.

In addition, Generation is manufactured in the Knoll LEED Gold and ISO 14001 certified Lubin Building in East Greenville, PA, using clean technologies. In 2008, Knoll initiated a program to offset greenhouse gases at this site with electricity generated by wind power.

About SMaRT©

SMaRT is distinguished from other certification programs as follows: it is a transparent, consensus-based and quantified sustainable product standard that measures a product's environmental benefits throughout the global supply chain.

SMaRT was developed by The Institute for Market Transformation to Sustainability (MTS), a non-profit group that brings together a powerful coalition of sustainable product manufacturers, environmental groups, and key state and local government leaders with the goal of increasing the sale and market share of sustainable products.

SMaRT product certification is based on the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED model. Requirements include:

* GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification at the stringent California 01350 standard
* The completion of a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA): a science-based measurement of a product's environmental impacts throughout the global supply chian, from raw materials sourcing through manufacturing, shipping, use, and re-use or end-of-life
* No polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or other toxic chemicals

Maharam - Textiles of the 20th Century








About the designers:



A founder of the Wiener Werkst├Ątte, Josef Hoffmann is noted for his prescient shift away from the literal, representational patterns of the times, toward the abstracted, geometrical motifs of early modernism. Influenced by the Austrian Arts and Craft movement, the Wiener Werkst├Ątte embraced simplicity, local materials and craft traditions in reaction against "useless" gingerbread ornamentation and industrial mass production.

Created by Josef Hoffmann in 1913, Design 9297 was never manufactured, and still retains the name assigned to it in the mill archive. To develop the palette, the Maharam Design Studio drew on color references from the early 20th Century, including other examples of Hoffmann's work.

Although the original trial sample from 1913 was created with a tapestry construction, the re-edition is rendered in a satin weave; this change in construction creates an elegant sheen and purity of color that further highlights the strikingly modern and graphic nature of the design.

Dedicated to accurate documentation, Textiles of the 20th Century® pays homage to the great multi-disciplinarians of the last century and brings their enduring work in textiles back to life.

Noted as one of the 20th century's most influential modernist designers and architects, Alexander Girard achieved prominence as director of Herman Miller's textile division from its formation in 1952 through the 1960s. His attention to tone, texture, and pattern translated into vivid fabrics that emphasized strong forms and bold colors. Other noteworthy projects include Girard's design of La Fonda del Sol restaurant (1959) and the Good Design exhibition at Museum of Modern Art in New York (1954).

Conceived as part of a larger collection of interior finishes, Roman Stripe was intended as a two-dimensional background, and utilizes strong geometric forms and nuanced color combinations to create visual texture and movement. Originally offered as silk-screened paper, the Maharam Design Studio re-engineered Roman Stripe as a contract wallcovering using an innovative non-PVC substrate.

Maharam has re-issued a total of thirteen Girard patterns, including Alphabet (1952), Checker (1965), Checker Split (1965), Circles (1952), Double Triangles (1952), Facets (1952), Jacobs Coat (1959), Mikado (1954), Millerstripe (1973), Quatrefoil (1954), Roman Stripe (1952), and Toostripe (1965).

Dedicated to accurate documentation, Textiles of the 20th Century® pays homage to the great multi-disciplinarians of the last century and brings their enduring work in textiles back to life.

Description

Ray and Charles Eames conceived of Dot Pattern for the Museum of Modern Art's Competition for Printed Fabrics in 1947. Initially introduced as a woven upholstery, Dot Pattern Sheer Positive is true to the original scale of the design. To create the airy positive/negative effect, Maharam has utilized a sophisticated burnout process commonly used in Europe, enabling the creation of depth and substance not possible in a simple printed sheer.

Maharam has re-issued a total of seven Eames patterns, including Circles, Crosspatch, Dot Pattern, Dot Pattern Sheer Negative, Dot Pattern Sheer Positive, Sea Things, and Small Dot Pattern, all of which were designed in 1947.

Dedicated to accurate documentation, Textiles of the 20th Century® pays homage to the great multi-disciplinarians of the last century and brings their enduring work in textiles back to life.
