click to enlarge

This is an EXCEPTIONALLY RARE first edition poster for the annual Herman Miller Picnic. Beginning in 1970 and for the next 19 summers the Herman Miller company picnic was announced with a series of posters as eagerly anticipated as the event itself. The Michigan firm is a designer/manufacturer of distinguished Modern furniture,most notably, perhaps, for the Eames chair so it's no surprise that the posters are also models of excellent design. The work of company creative director Steve Frykholm, the posters in this series are not only clear, bold, and bright, but also loaded with appetite appeal, seasonal aptness, and delicious humor. A complete set of all 20 posters is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Here, we have the 1986 picnic poster, in which we see a bright smattering of orange and pineapple slices, sprinkled with coconut shavings. It is in A condition. Framed and mounted.
