CE artists tour Herman Miller showroom

Posted on June 5, 2018

In preparation for an exclusive event in September called Inspired By ____, a group of Creativity Explored artists and Visual Arts Instructors toured the famed Herman Miller showroom located in the Financial District, San Francisco.

The artists got a chance to get inspired by the classic Herman Miller designs, including the iconic Eames chairs, and even see some CE art that was on display. While exploring the showroom, artists pointed out their favorite colors, textures, and products, taking in the modern designs. Artists like José Nuñez, Nubia Ortega, and Isaac Haney-Owens were particularly struck by the spectacular views. Pablo Calderon and Jesus Huezo took advantage of all the comfortable furniture and kicked their feet up to get the full experience.

Robert Scarf and Cecilia Lyra, who regaled the group about the unique architectural and art history of the property and surrounding area, hosted the tour. As part of this ongoing collaboration, Herman Miller, CRI, and Design Within Reach will be hosting an invite-only event for design industry professionals, featuring CE artwork, in mid-September. CE artists will be producing special works of art and decor inspired by the tour, including luxury “art pillows” made in partnership with Maharam, Kay Chesterfield, and Cushion Works.

The 2017 event provided a unique opportunity for CE artists to engage with the wider interior design and architectural community. Some of the “art pillows” and ceramics from last year’s event can be seen on display in the Herman Miller showroom.
