Product Description

Marshmallow Sofa

The iconic Marshmallow Sofa was designed by George Nelson after he was approached by an inventor that had designed the couch's plastic discs. Nelson, whose work is featured in the Museum’s collection, took 18 of the discs and arranged them atop a steel frame to create this sofa's unique appearance. Made of a steel frame and legs with leather discs. Made by Herman Miller®.

Mid-Century Design

Following World War II, a number of factors combined to foster a new direction in home products and furniture. New materials, such as molded plywood and plastic, and advances in mass production techniques opened a world of design options. Through the efforts of companies like Herman Miller, their longtime design director George Nelson, and the influential team of Charles and Ray Eames, these new designs could be produced for a broad market. A new vocabulary of ergonomic form, versatile function, and synthetic material emerged—and some of the most beloved furniture of the century was created.
