Birth of the Cube Farm



The fiftieth anniversary of Action Office this year has renewed interest in Propst's work--in May, he was written up in both the Wall Street Journal and the New Yorker. Though never as famous as some of Herman Miller's other designers, his designs touched more people's lives, for better or worse. Asked about the long-term effect of Propst's work, Malcolm answers, "Bob Propst and his invention completely changed the way we think about knowledge work and the places it happens."


The following Calls & letters item was published in the July 2014 Ann Arbor Observer:

Observer co-founder Mary Hoffmann Hunt emailed to add a West Michigan perspective to Grace Shackman's article on designer Bob Probst ("Birth of the Cube Farm," June).
