George Nelson Thin Edge Double Dresser, Chest, Santos Palisander, Herman Miller

About the Item

George Nelson thin edge double dresser, chest, Santos Palisander, Herman Miller. In 1944, Life magazine published an extensive article detailing the “Storage Wall”, George Nelson’s novel architectural concept for American homes that proposed to make walls thicker so that they could double as a place to put things away. The article caught the eye of Herman Miller founder D.J. De Pree, who was searching for a design director after the sudden death of Gilbert Rohde, and Nelson soon had the job. He went on to work as Design Director at Herman Miller for over 25 years. During this time he examined the problems people faced in their homes and offices and designed new types of furniture to address those needs. The Storage Wall concept was the forerunner to a series of cabinets that Nelson designed over the years. The Rosewood Cabinet Series of 1952 represents a synthesis of Nelson’s approach to modular storage furniture with a heightened attention to quality and craftsmanship. As the range of veneers expanded and design details were standardised, they were renamed in 1958 after the feature that gives them their unique aesthetic quality: the thin edge that frames the doors and drawers. Slim aluminum legs raise the volume above ground, creating a light aesthetic. Santos Palisander veneer outer panels, solid birch drawers, polished aluminum pulls. Polished aluminum legs with leveling floor glides.
