A new spin on an icon of modern design. http://hermanmiller.com” target=”_blank”>Herman Miller‘s Aeron Chair, once the symbol of excess and go-go culture of the 1990s, will now be a catalysis for a great cause. In benefit of the ongoing recovery effort from Tohoku Area Pacific Offshore Earthquake & Tsunami, Herman Miller and environment advocates of http://more-trees.org” target=”_blank”>more trees, asked 5 artists/designers in recreating the Aeron Chair. Participants include architects Yuko Nagayama, Yosuke Hayano, artists Kohei Nawa, Yasuhiro Suzuki, and floral artist Makoto Azuma. Each brought their conception of the Aeron and thus broaden its already sophisticated even further. One-of-one object of art, each creation will be auction next week with all proceeds going to LIFE311, a program to construct temporary housing for those displaced by the Tohoku Area Pacific Offshore Earthquake & Tsunami. All 5 are currently on display at Herman Miller Tokyo flagship.
