This short video offers a rare glimpse into the details and production at Herman Miller. Focusing specifically on the Eames Lounge and Ottoman, the video not only shares a visual account of the construction of the chair in Zeeland, MI, but narrates the process with an exploration of the ethos of Herman Miller design. These details are not accents or quirks. These details are not the details, they are evidence of quality.
