More than Just for Sitting

August 29, 2011

A group of our designers entered the Good Design challenge that corresponded with the Herman Miller exhibit at the Austin Museum of Art. World-renowned and West Michigan-based furniture company, Herman Miller, Inc., based in tiny Zeeland, Michigan, gave the world some of the most iconic objects of the century: Charles and Ray Eames’s molded plywood Lounge Chair, George Nelson’s Marshmallow Sofa and Bill Stumpf and Don Chadwick’s Aeron Chair.

STG Design staff, Brittney, Carrie, Denisse, Kandice, Lina, Lisa and Mattie were given 2 /12 weeks to artistically “upgrade” their white Eames chair for the competition based on what inspires them. Chairs were displayed at the Austin Museum of Art where they could be voted on by the public. The chairs will be auctioned off and the money will benefit the museum.

It’s amazing to see the creativity of the each staff member’s chairs. Chairs are in the following order: Brittney (mosaic from recycled aluminum cans), Carrie (all that shimmers in this world), Denisse (text from the novel The Fountainhead), Kandice (roles of modern day women), Lina (Austin weirdness ), Lisa (colored threads) and Mattie (nature scenes and a lake she visited in California)
