Irving Harper is one of the most iconic living figures in modernist style industrial design. Harper, who was born in 1916, worked for George Nelson Associates, Inc. creating designs for Herman Miller furniture. During that time he designed the iconic Marshmallow sofa and was also responsible for coming up with the Herman Miller brand logo. Irving also spent decades creating paper sculpture, a personal passion that he used as a stress relieving past time at home.  Since 1964, Harper populated his Rye, NY, home with about 500 of these magnificent paper works of art.  For more insight into this legendary designer, watch the video from Herman Miller’s Why Design series.
