Zoe’s visit to Herman Miller

This week, Synergy’s Creative Manager, Zoe Grimes paid a visit to Herman Miller at their beautiful Chippenham HQ, also known as ‘VillageGreen’.

She went along to ‘Threads’, a presentation given by long-serving employees of Herman Miller Inc., Steve Frykholm and Clark Malcolm. With 72 years at the company between them, (Steve as Graphic Designer and Clark as a writer), there’s no two better people to share the story of Herman Miller over a lunch-and-learn session.

‘Threads’ tells of Herman Miller’s history of design, openness to new ideas, people and respect, with Steve and Clark telling the stories of the people, products and events behind 107 year-old Herman Miller. Woven together, the many threads (11 to be exact) tell the story of how Herman Miller has become what it is today, the origins of its values and the culture that continues to thrive.

It was an interactive presentation with the audience choosing which of the 11 concepts/threads were to be discussed. Zoe said “It definitely felt more like a conversation than being talked at for 2 hours. It consisted of stories, video and audio from a golden era in Herman Miller history”.
