Threads is an interactive presentation that tells the story of Herman Miller’s history of design, openness to new ideas and people, and respect for individuals. In Threads, Steve Frykholm and Clark Malcolm will tell the stories of the people, products and events behind 107–year–old Herman Miller. Woven together, the many threads of this history tell the story of Herman Miller and the origins of the values and culture that will sustain it for years to come. Threads is an interactive presentation; the audience chooses the topics to be discussed and will include images, video clips and audio segments from Herman Miller’s long history of design and innovation.
