The three-cornered luxurious Coconut chair was created by one of America’s biggest contributors to the 1950’s minimalist movement. George Nelson took his inspiration from a great many similarly minded designers such as Eames and Jacobsen, and curiously, a coconut. Take a coconut, crack it into eight pieces and you reveal a remarkably comfortable chair with a slightly elongated back, shallow arms and appealing curves.
This formal clarity creates a rare freedom for the sitter. With its generously padded leather upholstered cushion, the chair invites you to snuggle into any position you can dream of and change your mind with surprising ease. The Nelson inspired Coconut chair will present your office or home with a very comfortable place to unwind after a long day.
The simplicity of this integrated aesthetic is what has made this design so enduring, and the high quality fabrics and manufacture of this particular embodiment is what will make your own Coconut chair last.
George Nelson, one of the founding fathers of American Modernism was born in 1908. While avoiding a rainstorm, Nelson ducked into the architecture school building to stay dry. It was then that he stumbled across an exhibit called "A Cemetery Gateway". After, unfolded his interest and progression in the field of architecture. The then chairman of Herman Miller discovered Nelson while reading an article on "The Tomorrow House" in a design rag named "Pencil Points". A year later George went to work for Herman Miller. One notable accomplishment was his idea to create a cleaner city in design as well as a reduction in pollution be it audio, visual or chemical. The outdoor malls in many suburbs of the U.S are in large part a result of his ambition. Some of his well known Modern Classic Furniture designs are the Nelson Bench also known as slat bench, the Coconut Chair and the Marshmallow Sofa.
