Herman Miller

By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with “modern” furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design. Since then, Herman Miller has collaborated with some of the most outstanding designers in the world, including Alexander Girard, Isamu Noguchi, Bill Stumpf, Don Chadwick, Studio 7.5, Yves Béhar, Doug Ball, and many talented others.

Bill Stumpf

Bill Stumpf

US, 1936 - 2006

"I work best when I'm pushed to the edge. When I'm at the point where my pride is subdued, where I'm innocent again. Herman Miller knows how to push me that way, mainly because the company still believes—years after D.J. De Pree first told me—that good design isn't just good business, it's a moral obligation. Now that's pressure." - Bill Stumpf

William Eugene "Bill" Stumpf  was a designer for Herman Miller who helped design the Aeron (with Don Chadwick) and Embody chairs (with Jeff Weber). It was at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where Stumpf, working with specialists in orthopedic and vascular medicine, conducted extensive research into ergonomics, specifically in the way people sit.

Stumpf's association with Herman Miller began in 1970 when he joined the staff of the Herman Miller Research Corporation. After establishing his own firm in 1972, Stumpf created the Ergon chair, the first ergonomic work chair. Later, in collaboration with Don Chadwick, he produced the groundbreaking Equa and iconic Aeron chairs. He also was principal designer for the Ethospace system.

During his lifetime, Stumpf—a key figure in Herman Miller's transformation into a research-based, problem-solving innovator—received numerous awards for his work. He was named the winner of the 2006 National Design Award in Product Design, an award presented posthumously by the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. Stumpf died in 2006.

Don Chadwick

Don Chadwick

USA, 1936

Don Chadwick was born in 1936 in Los Angeles and developed an interest in furniture making from his grandfather, a cabinetmaker. He studied design at the University of California, Los Angeles. It was there that he began to focused on furniture. After hearing Charles and Ray Eames lecture, Chadwick was convinced that furniture design offered designers the chance to use materials in new, innovative ways and to make a real difference in people’s lives.

He founded his own practice in 1964 and his work includes Chadwick Modular Seating, the Spark Chair, the Equa 1 Chair and the Aeron Chair that he designed with Bill Stumpf in 1994 for Herman Miller. Stumpf and Chadwick were awarded the Industrial Designers Society of America Design of the Decade Award for the Aeron Chair in 2000. Recently, Chadwick revisited the Aeron Chair, and worked with Herman Miller for nearly two years to update almost every element of the chair.
