Nelson Platform Bench

Designer: George Nelson
Equal parts seat and surface, the Nelson Platform Bench emerged from George Nelson’s Fortune magazine office to join his first Herman Miller Collection in 1946. Made with polished chrome or ebonized wood legs, and available in a variety of lengths and two finishes, this wooden bench can also serve as a low table or the foundation for the Basic Cabinet Series.

Nelson Platform Bench

More than a Bench

The Nelson Platform Bench is whatever you need it to be. It can be a wooden bench, a surface, for displaying objects or a low coffee table, holding magazines or books. It also serves as storage bench by elegantly supporting the Nelson Basic Cabinet Series.

Its clean lines reflect designer George Nelson's insistence on honest design: making a visual statement that defines an object’s purpose.
