Vintage 1950s Mid Century Modern George Nelson. Herman Miller Black Slat Bench.
George Nelson Herman Miller 6' slat bench, circa early 1950's. Original early Herman Miller foil label is present. Bench is in very nice condition with some normal signs of use commensurate with age. Measures 68 wide x 14 tall x 18.5 deep.
Please see all photos to determine exact condition. 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.
