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.
