Furniture: Geiger

Thursday and Friday of last week I was in Atlanta with the Herman Miller rep, a sales rep from the Herman Miller dealer in town, my boss and the other designer I work with. We had an absolute blast visiting showrooms, eating fantastic food, staying in a beautiful hotel in Buckhead and seeing some amazing art. I have dedicated most of the posts this week to cover our fun adventure....starting with our first stop, the Geiger showroom and manufacturing plant. Geiger is a Herman Miller owned company. Above is an amazing bench that i wanted.

i love how they displayed all of their finish options as art on the wall.

first sight coffee table that is in the same family as the bench i want. drool.

the plant tour was actually fascinating and i was not sure how much photography i could actually take. our tour guide walked us through the entire process of making a piece of furniture. i took this photo of piles of veneer. i had never seen veneer in it's natural state before being adhered to furniture. i think this is the maple up close and walnut behind it. so cool.

upholstered version of the first sight coffee table above.

this workstation made me happy because the work top slides left and right on a rail system and the blue in the storage units is actually painted wood. the interior of the overheads is blue too. the picture doesn't do it justice...much cooler in person.
these scissor chairs in the lobby are an oldie but goodie. i think they have had them in their line since the 70s and reissued them about 10 years ago.
