Since 1989 the IIDA Leaders Breakfast is a long-standing, celebrated event in which IIDA host cities bring together Interior Designers, clients, manufacturers, and community leaders for an inspiring morning.  Each of the the nine host cities chooses a keynote speaker, as well as, a Leadership Award of Excellence honoree.  Herman Miller has graciously bestowed a gift upon each city’s honoree in the form of the iconic Eames plywood splint. As there are now a limited number of splints, Herman Miller has unveiled a new gift to honorees.

Exclusive only to Leaders Breakfast honoree recipients, the award is a special icon of modern design that is attributed to the legacy of Charles and Ray Eames. This special edition stool is made from sustainable ash stained in a signature translucent aniline red, a favorite color of the Eameses. In addition to the special edition of the stool, honorees will also receive a specialty book on the history of the stool, and a framed print of the stool from the Herman Miller design archives.
