The team behind Geoge Nelson & Associates

To hear stories from the people that worked alongside Mid-Century American design giants is to witness an important time in American design history. Whether the stories be profound or anecdotal, it’s a glimmer of insight into an era that so many put in high regard. Hilda Longinotti, was a receptionist for George Nelson and Associates for 21 years. She shares a few of her memories with us through Herman Miller’s Why blog. Longinotti’s perspective as a member of the team gives us insight into some amusing stories including original Warhols created for a campaign that went missing. “The Hilda Stories,” is animated by Damien Florébert Cuypers and produced by Hello Design.
