History

Mid-Century Design

Following World War II, a number of factors combined to foster a new direction in home products and furniture. New materials, such as molded plywood and plastic, and advances in mass production techniques opened a world of design options. Through the efforts of companies like Herman Miller, their longtime design director George Nelson, and the influential team of Charles and Ray Eames, these new designs could be produced for a broad market. A new vocabulary of ergonomic form, versatile function, and synthetic material emerged—and some of the most beloved furniture of the century was created.
