Herman Miller Cuties

Herman Miller has opened its first store in 4-ever (there was one in NYC 1960-1967). The new store, being in Tokyo, needed to have some store-only limited edition items... This is my fave: a set of eight kid’s blocks dressed in House Industries numbers, shapes & patterns with the sides based on the original Herman Miller delivery boxes. But wait! They then packaged the “box” in a miniature corrugated shipping carton that includes tiny brown kraft packing tape. Add in that it's all made in the Herman Miller homeland of Michigan, this gets a big Hello There Cutie for design and staying true to design roots. xxxo
