Irving Harper

In their last series of Why Design videos, Herman Miller has been questioning some designers, like Yves Béhar and Don Chadwick, about their creative process. In the last film, the emblematic modernist designer Irving Harper opened his house doors to talk about his long career and inspirations. Being the creator of Herman Miller logo and working for George Nelson studio for almost two decades, where he developed (without any personal credit) iconic pieces like the Marshmallow sofa and Ball clock. In his Rye house, located in New York state, Irving Harper lives in an eclectic and harmonious environment, full of african art, modernist furniture and his impressive paper sculptures... simply inspiring!
