About the Designer

George Nelson

George Nelson believed that furniture should be a simple, direct expression of construction with existing techniques.A 1931 graduate of Yale's School of Fine Arts, Nelson became an architect after graduate school, when building was at a standstill following the Great Depression and World War II. He held the post of director of the Herman Miller furniture company from 1946 to 1965 and became one of the most influential figures in modern American design: he commissioned work by the Eameses, Alexander Girard, and others who made significant contributions to the field.
