To mark the launch of a new website for Hermann Miller furniture, Part of a Bigger Plan has created a short animated film telling the story of the illustrious company’s 108 years in 108 seconds

Amsterdam-based Part of a Bigger Plan is headed up by Christian Borstlap, who we profiled in our May issue (you can read the piece here). The agency has made a range of charming animated brand films for clients such as Louis Vuitton and Mr Porter.

This latest short was commissioned by Hermann Miller to launch its new digital platform, WHY. It’s an animated timeline of the company’s history and the designers it has worked with
