The Cranbrook Connection

The legacy of Cranbrook’s innovative and collaborative spirit remains integral to the identity and success of MillerKnoll.

The stories of Herman Miller and Knoll have been connected since the 1930s when foundational designers Florence Knoll, Ray and Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen, and Harry Bertoia met at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, becoming colleagues, collaborators, and lifelong friends.

The Cranbrook Academy's emphasis on modernist principles, interdisciplinary collaboration, and innovative use of materials and technologies continues to be a cornerstone in MillerKnoll's design philosophy and product offerings.
