Synopsis: An early 1950’s flyer for Herman Miller designed for showrooms, sales offices and third-party vendors as an introductory leaflet for domestic customers. The thin concertinaed design cleverly opens out to either double, triple, or full-page size and is printed on both sides. The entire inside segments are dedicated to designs of George Nelson & Associates. The reverse introduces the fabrics and wallpapers of Alexander Girard and the fiberglass, plywood, and wire chairs from Charles Eames. The entire brochure is designed with the company Red, Black and White color scheme and is a nice early example of the growing portfolio of designs.
