As many of you know, I started my professional life in advertising, which may help explain my obsession with both Mad Men and mid-century design. I ran across this post from the Herman Miller blog and admit to letting out a sigh of nostalgia for that world. My alma mater, Leo Burnett, is featured below from wall-art in the Singapore office. Enjoy!
Still smarting from the end of this season of Mad Men? (And can we make it through another year without being able to spot the mid-century modern pieces popping up in Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce?) While you wait, get your design fix from a few modern-day ad agencies that Don Draper — or perhaps his design-loving wife Megan — would be proud to call home.
Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, the multidisciplinary creative agency Parliament is stocked with pieces by Charles and Ray Eames, including Eames molded plastic side chairs and Eames molded plywood chairs. (Photo: Parliament)
A mix of Eames Aluminum Group Management Chairs, Ronald McDonald heads, horse-shaped lighting, foot sculptures, and ball pits make Chandelier Creative one of New York City’s most remarkable workspaces. (Photos: NOTCOT)
