"What I admire about art is the unexpected, the originality; architecture is of course the context and the home of what we make, and fashion has a wonderful dynamism to it, reflecting the spirit of the time and what's happening right now. I would say that the best products we have done, they may exist somewhere in between these three environments, drawing from a little bit of everything." - Rolf Hay

In a new light, for the Herman Miller x HAY Collection, the Danish design house HAY thoughtfully reimagines Eames classics in new vibrant colorways.

New materials, especially those that held promise for doing more with less, fascinated the Eameses throughout their careers. Plastic was no exception. they saw in it the chance to form organic seat shells that conform to the body's shape. The Eameses adapted manufacturing techniques developed during World War II to mass-produce this design in side and armchair versions. As they typically did, the Eameses required that materials be expressed honestly and unselfconsciously so these were the first one-piece plastic chairs offered without upholstery or covering. Their enduring design and quality construction make them durable performers in many environments.

The primary need of the human being was an essential component of every design for Eames. They believed a design to be successful when it catered to how people are similar to one another instead of addressing idiosyncrasies, benefitting the greatest number of people.
Herman Miller is synonymous with “modern” furniture. Creative director George Nelson recruited contemporaries Charles & Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, and Noguchi to create a legendary furniture collection.
