George Nelson, 1946
Legendary designer George Nelson designed the Nelson Bench for his office at 'Fortune' magazine in 1946. The bench's clean linear aesthetic reflects the designer's background as an architect. Like many design classics, the Nelson bench has multiple uses, readily serving as a surface for seating, storage or display functions. It is available in two sizes and two colour versions.
George Nelson is regarded as one of the most important figures in American design. Active as an architect, a product and exhibition designer and a writer, he was a leading voice in the discourse on design and architecture over several decades. Vitra is the sole authorised manufacturer of specified Nelson products for markets in Europe and the Middle East.
