”Threads” is an interactive, live event with Steve Frykholm and Clark Malcolm presented in over twenty cities since 2014.
Frykholm has stacks of design awards. His graphic picnic posters hang in the Museum of Modern Art. Malcolm has written, edited or coauthored 17 books on leadership and design. In ”Threads”, the retired duo share stories about the people, products and events behind 112-year-old Herman Miller.
Rasikas Films and colleagues recently captured their many recollections and, with Herman Miller archives, illustrated 18 select stories for employees and select A&D (architect & design) groups.
Here’s one on the launch of the iconic “Aeron” chair in the 1990s:
