Sustainable Design: Hear it from the Masters

Architect, designer, and eco-luminary Bill McDonough is a person we greatly respect. He has been a long-time collaborator with Herman Miller: designing our award-winning GreenHouse facility, as well as working with us on the design the Mirra chair, the first office chair to meet McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC) Cradle to Cradle Design Framework, ensuring Mirra’s positive impact on the planet.

On Thursday, June 9, McDonough will be speaking alongside “Cradle to Cradle” co-author Dr. Michael Braungart for the first time in six years as part of a fundraiser for their Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute (think LEED for products). The event will be held at the InterContinental San Francisco. This is a great opportunity to hear McDonough and Braungart speak about the next Industrial Revolution, in which consumption is a good thing.
