Herman Miller chairs - labels, ID marks, etc.

Postby AJ Fisher » Mon Dec 03, 2007 10:07 am

Hey everybody,

Does anyone know of a comprehensive, online reference for identifying and dating Herman Miller chairs? I know of the Herman Miller consortium collection, but it doesn't address labeling and maker's marks.

I found a white, fiberglass chair (left side of image below) yesterday while thrifting that looks identical to another verified Herman Miller chair (right side of image below) I have. This new chair however does not have a label, or the "embossed" Herman Miller name and logo on the underside. It does have an illegible silver circular stamp and silver serial sequence however. Looks like there may have been a foil label that fell off.

Please repost any images you have of other Herman Miller labels/maker's marks, etc. to this post. Maybe we can develop a timeline of the different identifying marks?

Thanks!

-AJ
