Once again the Asia-Pacific branch of Herman Miller has been working on an interesting new project. They recently got together with typographers House Industries on a small collaborative collection of tables.
“House Industries and Herman Miller Japan announce a conceptually elegant collaboration that combines the classic Eames wire-base table with timeless typographic forms drawn from the House Industries Eames Century Modern font collection. Each tabletop is hand-printed in House’s Grand Rapids, Michigan factory, returned to Herman Miller for assembly then packaged in a special House Industries-designed wooden crate.
House Industries and Herman Miller are producing a limited edition series of 80 tables that include A thru Z, numbers and ornaments from House Industries Eames Century Modern font collection. Forty tables will be available at the Herman Miller Reach event on September 16, 2011 and 40 will be available at the House Industries exhibition at the Herman Miller Tokyo Showroom on October 27, 2011.”
A nice preview video of the exhibition is featured here below.
