GRAND RAPIDS, MI -- Contract furniture manufacturer Herman Miller's Materials program received a 2010 Green Good Design award from the Chicago Athenaeum and the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. 

The program is a result of collaboration between Herman Miller and Michael McGinn of the Michael McGinn Design Office.

According to McGinn, the program supports Herman Miller's sustainability goals: "We succeeded in reducing the waste of traditional sampling programs, while simultaneously making the materials more accessible and easier to specify. The program is built around an innovative materials browser and sample books that can be recycled in their entirety, becoming raw material for new products and processes."
