Biography   Gilbert Rohde


A designer whose avant-garde style revolutionized early 20th-century furniture styles through the Herman Miller Furniture Company, Gilbert Rohde is described as having a driving force of "staying on the crest of modernity." (81) He was the son of a cabinetmaker, who had immigrated with his family to New York City from Prussia.  He attended Stuyvesant High School when it was a technical school, and he also discovered his talent for drawing and painting.  He attended the Art Student's League, and by the early 1920s was employed as a freelance illustrator for department store catalogues.  Clients were impressed, including Macy's and Abraham and Straus, whose company specialized in furniture and interior designs.    ...  Displaying 750 of 4020 characters.
