Designed in 1946 by George Nelson, this simple yet versatile piece of furniture has become an icon of mid century modernism. Made by Herman Miller in the 1950s this piece has been well loved and used as a platform for cabinets from the BCS line, also designed by Nelson. It has a time earned patina of contact wear on the bench top but remains very solid and structurally sound, testament to both design and construction.
Authentic details such as the small screws used in the central bridge joints, dowels on the end finger joints and mitered leg joints are all present.
The bench also retains a scrap of the original paper Herman Miller label that was stapled to the underside (see final photo).
Dimensions: 92 1/2 long x 18 1/4 deep x 14" high
