Originally launched in 1947, the Nelson Platform Bench is aesthetically pleasing and functionally frank—a place to take a seat, wherever called for, just as George Nelson intended.
Nelson was an architect before becoming a designer, and the bench’s rectilinear lines reflect his architectural sensibilities, as well as his insistence that a design should make an honest visual statement about an object’s purpose.
It’s available in three lengths with polished chrome or ebonized wood legs. The bench’s flawless design is matched by close attention to detail in manufacturing. Solid wood slats that have been sorted into aesthetically pleasing combinations are assembled by hand and sealed with a clear-coat finish. The slats settle neatly into lap joints, making the bench as durable as it is arresting.
Now an icon of mid-century modernism, the Nelson Platform Bench offers utility and beauty. It can serve as a seat or a table, with units able to be ganged together to create a larger surface. Slender chrome legs elegantly complement the bench's solid maple or walnut top, whose natural wood variations are showcased.
Wood bench with solid maple or walnut slats with a clear coat finish. Legs in finger jointed ebonized maple with rubber bumpers or a metal chromed base with levelling glides.
