The Nelson Bench is made of ash, combining the natural colour of the seat with a black finish on the base. Its clean linear aesthetic underlines the architectural background of the designer, George Nelson. It can be used as a bench or low table.
George Nelson, born 1908 in Hartford, Connecticut (USA), studied architecture at Yale University. A fellowship enabled him to study at the American Academy in Rome from 1932 to 1934. In Europe, he became acquainted with the major architectural works and leading protagonists of modernism.
