Then x Ten by Herman Miller
Fortyfivedownstairs hosts an exhibition of past and present posters from the iconic furniture brand
Combining a retrospective of the brand’s most classic posters with modern interpretations by ten of the world’s leading image-makers the collection, curated by Herman Miller’s creative director Steve Frykholm, celebrates Herman Miller’s rich and varied history. And in a time when digital advertising mediums are changing how companies represent themselves a glance backwards to the golden age of print reminds us of the sheer talent and creativity of the artists behind it.
