The George Nelson Bench: A Rendezvous of Art and Simplicity


 
Interior Design,Home Improvement
The George Nelson slat bench is one of those simplistic modern mid century designs which continue to be a part of the furniture market till date. The airy slat bench is supported by a finger jointed pair of legs made of ebonite and rectilinear solid maple wood blocks that form the table top. The rectilinear lines have regular gaps through them to allow light and air to pass through. Moreover, the platform bench is available in light ash, walnut, black and many other shades and also in three different sizes i.e. widths of 48. 60 and 72 inches, to meet the varying requirements of buyers.

The multipurpose bench was given form in 1946, when Nelson decided to construct something that would serve as a seating for the people who waited for long hours. However, due to its versatile pattern and amazing strength, this bench now forms apart of both offices and homes. This artifact carries the uncanny ability to establish a rapport with a wide variety of décor and furniture genres, either by serving as a highly functional side table or a decorative garden bench.

George Nelson, the then Director of Design, Herman Miller and the man behind this idea, believed art was in simplicity. Not only the George Nelson bench, the other artifacts designed by this furniture architect exhibit simplicity in a unique way. For instance the Nelson coconut Chair and the Marshmallow sofa are concepts that rarely appear in the market.

He was the one of those early mid century designers who believed in blending cultural patterns to evolve innovative furniture pieces. His concepts are inspired by both American and European design forms as he carried out a thorough study on European avant grade and shared their ideas, notion and backdrop against which European furniture was structured with the US design community.

George Nelson’s association with Herman Miller dates back to 1945, when the manufacturing company was producing conventional wood based designs and had not yet ventured the unknown and exceptional era of furniture making. The then Chairman, D.J Depree decided to position him as the Director of Design, after reading his book “Tomorrow’s house” where he had elaborately laid down the concept of family rooms and storage walls. After becoming the Director of Design in 1947, Nelson held the position for 25 years which proved to be a golden period of success both for him and the company. During his time, many eminent designers like Noguchi, Charles and Ray Eames and many other worked under his supervision to take the company standards to completely a different level.

Today Herman Miller is associated with inspiring designs, strategic services and innovative use of technology has made them rank the highest in helping people to express modernism in their lifestyle whether it is in their home décor or work place. Its motto to enrich lifestyle with perfect artifacts has led to its huge collection which not only includes Nelson pieces but exclusive designs from Charles and Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi and many more eminent furniture architects.

Danny is a home decor enthusiast who writes extensively on George Nelson Bench . His main focus is on offering the most useful tips to people looking for Modern furniture San Jose.
