George Nelson laid out five tenets of Herman Miller's design philosophy 50 years ago:
What you make is important.
Design is an integral part of the business.
The product must be honest.
You decide what you will make.
There is a market for good design.
While fashion and style have their place, the main criterion for a Herman Miller product has remained constant: Does it truly solve a problem that people care about in a way that improves upon other solutions, or pioneers a new and better answer altogether? The answer is Yes.
