Mildred Friedman’s Thoughts on Design and Herman Miller
I thought she would be a great coda to our recent exploration of Herman Miller, so I recently interviewed her over the phone. I wondered what she thought was the key to the designers’ success behind the famous office chairs that Herman Miller produced. It should not come as a big surprise that she said her favorite designers were Charles and Ray Eames, mainly because they were the “smartest.”
I also wanted to know what led her to become interested in Design. Click below to listen more.
(Special thanks goes to her daughter and granddaughter, who were helpful in arranging the interview.)
