Herman Miller Turns Over New "Leaf" for Breast Cancer Research & Awareness

Sept. 1, 2007

Herman Miller Inc. is adding a new dimension to its award-winning Leaf personal light. A limited-edition pink Leaf will be the focus of the company's first-ever product campaign to raise awareness about breast cancer. Orders for the pink edition of Leaf will be accepted through Herman Miller dealerships and retail partners for delivery in October, which is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The company will donate a percentage of the proceeds to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation for breast cancer awareness, research and treatment. "We all know someone who's been touched by breast cancer," says Herman Miller's Kris Manos. "Herman Miller has an opportunity to raise awareness and fund research to fight this disease-to contribute a portion of Leaf's proceeds to make for a brighter future for those impacted by breast cancer." Each of the limited-edition pink Leaf personal lights will be numbered and carry the signature of the designer, Yves Béhar. More information is available at www.hermanmiller.com.
