George Nelson for Herman Miller Living Room Set

About the Item

George Nelson for Herman Miller living room set, United States, 1960s. This fine living room set consisting of two sofas and a side table is designed by the renowned American furniture designer George Nelson. This sleek design is characterized by a solid construction based on sharp lines and geometric shapes that are noticeable in the body of the seats and the frame, underlining the clear structured design. The metal legs elevate the seat up in a graceful way, creating an open and more transparent look to the whole unit. George Nelson (1908-1986) was an architect, writer, lecturer and designer who was one of the first to pick up Industrial Design in the United States. Nelson fundamentally questioned the basis of furniture business. After initial reluctance Nelson came to work as a designer and director at Herman Miller in 1944. Here, Nelson rejected the purely market-oriented type of business model that was predominant in the furniture sector and plead only to make furniture of which he was completely convinced: the rest would follow. In his first year at Miller, he produced 77 designs. Nelson believed furthermore that the industrial designer brought together all the arts. His designs are recognized by open shapes, clean lines and modest forms. The dimensions listed are of the large sofa. Small sofa dimensions : Height 69 cm Depth 76 cm Width 190 cm Seat Height: 38 cm.
