Herman Miller Clocks

Herman Miller Clocks Company Timeline


Timeline 1926

In 1926, Howard Miller founded the Howard Miller Clocks company, known today for high-end grandfather clocks, wall clocks, mantel clocks, atomic clocks and more clocks of the highest quality. What many people do not know is that Howard Miller was the son of Herman Miller, and when the doors of the Howard miller Clock Company actually opened, it was directly across the street from the Herman Miller Furnture Company, both of which still exist next door to each other in Zeeland, Michigan. Herman Miller Clocks are comparably very rare compared to Howard Miller Clocks, and are prized by collectors and interior decorators alike.

Herman Miller, like many companies, faces failure amid the turmoil of the Great Depression. De Pree, looking for a way to save the company, meets Gilbert Rohde, a designer from New York, at Herman Miller's Grand Rapids showroom. Rohde convinces De Pree to move away from traditional furniture and to focus on products better suited to the changing needs and life styles of Americans.
