Author to speak at Everson focusing on design as a problem solving discipline:
The Everson Museum of Art will host Focusing on Design: A Problem Solving Discipline, presented by Mr. John Berry, on Aug. 29 at 2 p.m. John Berry is the author of "Herman Miller: The Purpose of Design," which is the basis for the exhibition Good Design: Stories from Herman Miller. The event is free and open to the public.
John Berry will discuss and explore how the world of design is used to meet real needs. His background and experience with Herman Miller provides him with great anecdotes and lessons to share. John Berry has also worked with the Eames Office and George Nelson, designers for Herman Miller.
Good Design: Stories from Herman Miller is on display at the Everson through Oct. 17. The exhibition explores the use of design by Herman Miller, a world- renowned furniture company, to solve problems for the home and workplace since 1923.
"This is a wonderful opportunity to discover and explore the possibilities created when good design serves our everyday needs," said Pam McLaughlin, Curator of Education and Public Programs. "As the author of the story behind the exhibit, we are looking forward to John Berry's highly anticipated presentation."
