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 three lengths with a choice of finishes, it serves as a bench, low table, or foundation for the Basic Cabinet Series.

More than a Bench

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

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