Then x Ten: The Power of the Poster

furniture brand celebrate their dedication to visual arts...

There are very few brands around with such history and heritage in design and visual aesthetic than Herman Miller. With more than a century in the game, the furniture manufacturer – who have released products from iconic designers through the years (from Charles and Ray Eames to Yves Béhar) – have long had a strong presence in visual communication too; vintage marketing posters from the likes of Don Ervin and Armin Hoffman hang in design galleries around the world.

Alongside a curated selection of archive posters from their history – courtesy of Steve Frykholm, the brands creative director of 42 years – Then x Ten, a major new exhibition at Melbourne’s evocative fortyfivedownstairs gallery, the likes of Craig & Karl, Jonathan Zawada and Emily Forgot provide modern updates.

Then x Ten opens today, and runs ’til 25th August.
