Herman Miller Design Catalog (1964) from the collection of Elaine K. Sewell Jones

Another interesting book from the collection of A. Quincy Jones and Elaine K. Sewell Jones, this Herman Miller Design Catalog from 1964 features detailed designs, which are organized by dividers labeled: Chairs, Seating Systems, /Seating, Tables, Office Systems, /Conference Tables, Cases & Beds, /CSS, Textiles & Objects, General Information, and Specifications.

My favorite section is Textiles & Objects that arranges swatches of fabric and an assortment of colored fiberglass for Eames shell chairs.

This catalog will be available for purchase in the upcoming LAMA Spring 2010 Auction.

Here is a selection of photographs of pages from the Herman Miller Design Catalog.
