If you’re a designer and you’re getting tired of people not-in-the-business asking you things like “Who is this Paul Rand?” or “What’s with all these geodesic domes?” then we have the site for you: Discovering Design at the Herman Miller site. Sure, it’s part sales pitch, mixing in the Miller products among the biggest of the big, or having Miller employees talk up the people they’re profiling, but it’s a great little quick introduction into the most important figures and happenings in design in the last, say, hundred years or so. And a nice little interface to boot.
