History of the Original Designer, George Nelson
George Nelson, one of the founding fathers of American Modernism was born in 1908. While avoiding a rainstorm, Nelson ducked into the architecture school building to stay dry. It was then that he stumbled across an exhibit called A Cemetery Gateway". After, unfolded his interest and progression in the field of architecture. The then chairman of Herman Miller discovered Nelson while reading an article on The Tomorrow House" in a design rag named Pencil Points". A year later George went to work for Herman Miller. One notable accomplishment was his idea to create a cleaner city in design as well as a reduction in pollution be it audio, visual or chemical. The outdoor malls in many suburbs of the U.S are in large part a result of his ambition. Some of his well known Modern Classic Furniture designs are the Nelson Bench also known as slat bench, the Coconut Chair and the Marshmallow Sofa.
