an industrial designer and unsung hero who worked for george nelson associates. by day mr. harper had a hand in designing some of the most iconic mid-century items for nelson and herman miller. all of these — clocks, marshmallow sofa — were credited to nelson and the firm.

but by night….harper made paper sculptures. ahhhhh….
