A true must-have for any dwelling. Introduced in 1946, the Nelson Platform Bench remains a landmark of modern design. The clean, rectilinear lines reflect designer George Nelson’s architectural background and his insistence on what he called honest design—making an honest visual statement about an object’s purpose. The bench serves as a multipurpose display and resting place in offices, public areas and homes. Buy the original here at the Herman Miller store or a quality reproduction here.
