About the Designer
George Nelson George Nelson United States (1908 - 1986)

George Nelson began his design for what became the Swag Leg Group with the simple desire to create furniture with a sculptured leg. Beyond beauty, he sought practicality, insisting that the legs be made of metal, machine formed and pre-finished. The Nelson Swag Leg Group is a revival of an historic collection by George Nelson. Introduced in 1958, the group's evocative pieces have a look, scale, and function that are simply right for today. These classic, sculpted designs can be used individually or together in the home or office, from meeting spaces to offices and dining areas.

The Nelson platform bench is a multipurpose resting place for people and their things. With its simple, sparse lines, the bench is also a striking accent - a piece of art in itself that has become a sought-aftercollector's item for use in a living room, vestibule, bedroom, library, office, or public area.

It's whatever you need it to be—a platform for displaying artwork or plants, a bench for seating, or a low table for magazines, a bowl of candy, a TV, or a CD player.


The Design:
  • Introduced in 1946 the Nelson platform bench was part of George Nelson's first collection for Herman Miller and still stands as a benchmark of modern design. Like much of Nelson's work, the platform bench has clean, rectilinear lines, reflecting his architectural background and his insistence on what he calls "honest" design--that is, making an honest visual statement about an object's purpose.
  • As presented in the 1948 Herman Miller furniture catalog, the platform bench "is primarily a high base for deep and shallow cases, but it also serves as a low table for extra seating." The 1955 catalog states that the bench "has proved to be one of the most flexible and useful units in the collection." The bench was reintroduced in 1994.

    • Strong enough to be used as a bench
    Smart and Strong
    • Solid maple top with clear-coat finish
    • Slat design allows air and light through
    • Finger-jointed legs for superior strength

    The Nelson platform bench is a multipurpose resting place for people and their things. With its simple, sparse lines, the bench is also a striking accent - a piece of art in itself that has become a sought-aftercollector's item for use in a living room, vestibule, bedroom, library, office, or public area.

    George Nelson designed the first version of his Platform Bench to discourage visitors to his New York office from staying too long. He figured that having to sit on a slatted bench would be uncomfortable enough to drive people he didn't want to see away. It didn't work. People liked the bench, and they stayed. But if you want to make sure people sit on your Nelson Platform Bench, these cushion's are specifically designed to fit perfectly on Nelson benches.


    Features:
    • Fabric: Felt
    • Perfect for the Nelson Platform Bench
    • The cushion attaches to the bench with Velcro® fasteners attached to straps that fit around the bench slats
    • The cushion is made of a single piece of polyurethane foam, for superior comfort and durability.
