George Nelson (1908 – 1986) helped establish American Modernism. Most established as an industrial designer and writer, he helped bring designers like Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier to the North American scene while making his own contributions to the industry.
Nelson did not intend to become an architect. His career began by accident when he came across the architecture faculty at Yale when avoiding the rain. However, he quickly became known in modern design circles, even before graduating from the program.
Critical of peers who bent to the whims of their clients, Nelson maintained a belief that the ideas of modernism should always been maintained. His Coconut Chair and Platform Bench series are examples of his strong principles and devotion to the style.
