Inside The Mind Of An Architect: Herman Miller's POV

If you've ever sketched out your dream house on a napkin, considered what it would be like if you knocked down a wall in your home to open it up or walked by an empty house and had a vision of how you'd love to fix it up, you'll love Herman Miller's new site, Point of View, a window into the thought process of a number of high profile architects and the amazing spaces they've designed.

Herman Miller, the manufacturer of many of the classic designs that furnished the iconic homes that defined MidCentury Modernism and that are still furnishing our homes today -- the Eames Lounger, the Marshmallow sofa -- has taken a unique approach to showcasing their designs. The new site not only spotlights how their pieces work in even the most contemporary of California spaces but provides a place to celebrate design and inspire future designers.

Six architects from five firms -- Leo Marmol and Ron Radziner (Marmol Radziner), Kim Coleman (Cigolle X Coleman), James Meyer (LeanArch), Jim Jennings (Jennings Architecture), and John Friedman (JFAK Architects) -- share their thoughts on various aspects of design and construction. From prefab to materials, they offer us a glimpse into how they addressed problems and devised innovative solutions for these arresting spaces which photographer Juergen Nogai (Julius Shulman's former business partner) captures in beautiful detail.
