Nelson Bench

George Nelson, 1946

The Nelson Bench by George Nelson attractively combines a natural ash seat with a black lacquered base and comes in two different lengths. With its clean linear aesthetic, the design not only reflects George Nelson’s background as an architect, it also perfectly complements stylish entrance areas, lounges and lobbies – where it can be used as a bench or low table.
