New Spin on an Eames Favorite

Herman Miller Select Program Places a New Spin on an Eames Favorite
Herman Miller, Inc., has unveiled its second limited edition Select release for customers seeking to enrich their connection with two of the worlds most renowned designers Charles and Ray Eames.

The classic combination of Herman Miller and Eames inspired this years release, which includes a set of three distinct spinning tops. Inspired by the Eameses 1969 movie Tops, the Select tops are crafted from walnut and each one carries its own sculptural profile designed by the New York-based KleinReid design studio.

The 2009 Select release puts a playful spin on the passion Charles and Ray Eames had for toys, says Gregg Vander Kooi, product manager for Herman Millers classics. The Eameses considered playtime their productive time and recognized that play can often inspire new and creative ideas.

The Select tops carry a minimum advertised price of $199 and will be available beginning
October 14, 2009, until April 15, 2010, from the companys global network of dealerships and retailers.
