I’m back from a 3 day business trip to the Herman Miller Headquarters in Michigan. It was really fun. We talked with them about their design process, saw some interesting work they’re doing at the architectural scale, and toured their factory, designed by Cradle to Cradle’s  infamous William McDonough.

I also got a chance to meet and chat with Chuck Hoberman about parametric design. I did not know he’d moved to buildings.

All in all, it was a fantastic visit and hopefully soon I can talk more about what will come out of it.

More pictures from the visit are here. (I’m a pretty poor photographer and I use flickr for storage more than gallery…apologies for the blurry pics!)
