Herman MillerHerman Miller has been dedicated to design for more than 75 years. With a design legacy that began under the leadership of Gilbert Rohde and George Nelson in the 1930s and 40s, the company gained a worldwide following for its modern furniture collection by the early 1950s, with chairs, sofas and tables for home and office by designers like Charles & Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, George Nelson, and Isamu Noguchi. These icons of modern design developed products that still endure today. And, through continued innovation at the company and a new generation of designers and ideas, the products that Herman Miller makes today will endure for decades to come. Herman Miller works for a better world around you. They do this by designing furnishings that improve the human experience - from pioneering the way for ergonomic office seating and furniture to stewarding environmental leadership in its business and manufacturing processes, product material usage and product life cycles. Herman Miller's longstanding commitment to the world around us continues to drive design solutions for the modern home and workspace. The company continues to develop its designer relationships with names like Yves Behar, Jeff Weber and Studio 7 adding lighting, storage and office collections to its catalog of design classics.
Architect & designer Craig Bassam and brand strategist & creative director Scott Fellows joined forces in 2003, forming BassamFellows. Following successful solo ventures, the two met up with a single, shared vision in mind: to return true craftsmanship and beauty to contemporary living. The two share a passion for the timelessness and masterful detailing of modern classic furniture. Their desire is to mix this with contemporary design and "blend it with honest materials, solid construction, beauty, and utility."
Raised in New York and completing his MBA at Harvard MBA, Fellows honed his branding skills working with international powerhouses such as Corning Housewares, Bally, and Ferragamo luxury goods. Bassam, who grew up in Sydney, was such a devotee of modernism that he eventually moved to New Canaan, Connecticut, where many of its architects lived and practiced. He began his own design studio there in 1997. Both had lived and worked in Europe, where they were influenced by the use of fine leather and wood. Over the years, the well-balanced design aesthetic of Bassam and Fellows has resulted in such iconic pieces as their Tractor Stool and the Tuxedo Collection for Herman Miller.View other products by BassamFellows
