George Nelson began with the base when designing his Swag Leg Armchair (1958). Insisting on machine-formed metal legs, he discovered a solution in swaging, a method of using pressure to taper and curve metal tubing. The next question became how to connect the legs, and Nelson answered it through his own deceptively simple engineering. He then received permission from Charles and Ray Eames to use the patented process that they developed for molding plastic. Adapting this process to suit his chair, Nelson created separate shells for the seat and back. First made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic, the shells are now made of recyclable polypropylene, consistent with the Herman Miller commitment to be a good steward of the earth’s resources. The Nelson Swag Leg Armchair flexes with the occupant, allows comfortable air circulation through an opening between the seat and back and has ample armrests. This is an authentic Nelson product by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.

Chrome

For normal cleaning, wet cheesecloth in a nonabrasive cleaner, like liquid dish soap, and rub the chrome component lightly until the original luster reappears. Dry the component with a soft cloth to remove any soap residue.

Coated Metal

For normal cleaning, wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the manufacturer's instructions. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen. For assistance in determining the appropriate color and gloss for Herman Miller touch-up paint, contact your Herman Miller Customer Service Representative.

For normal cleaning, wash plastic surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use solvents or abrasive kitchen cleaners.

level of comfort as an office chair

I am undecided between this chair and the eames management to pair with my nelson desk. aesthetically, I prefer the nelson chair, especially because my office at home is in an open plan with my living room. Does anyone have experience with the nelson chair as an office chair and can speak about how comfortable it is?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2014
Best Answer: The Nelson Swag Leg Chair is a very comfortable desk chair.

When George Nelson decided to use separate pieces for the seat and back of this chair, he created a design that lets the chair flex as the sitter moves. A slit between the seat and back helps prevent heat build-up. Wide, flat arms provide a comfortable resting place for your arms.

Either the Nelson Swag Leg chair or the Eames Management chair are good options to pair with your Nelson desk. If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase from the Herman Miller Store, you can return your order to us for a full refund within 30 days of delivery.
