George Nelson

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. 

Reviews

I received the bench about 11

20
I received the bench about 11 weeks after I ordered it, even though it felt like forever but with very informative customer care I was able to pull through it. I read previous reviews about the color and quality, and so I expected the bench to be brownish/black and was not disappointed. I needed a nice bench near my front hallway, and this fitted perfectly in that space. I was concerned that my husband would not like the bench, but he seemed pleasantly pleased. Great first experience with Rove Concepts!
