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.

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.

This bench’s strength is belied by its sleek and airy appearance. It’s made of solid wood slats, spaced to let air and light through, and sealed with a clear-coat finish. The wood legs are ebonized and finger-jointed for added reinforcement.
The bench is 14 inches tall and 18 1/2 inches deep and available in three widths—48, 60, and 72 inches. The wood legs are ebonized and finger—jointed.
Ebonized, finger-jointed wood legs or cantilevered polished chrome legs with leveling glides.
Why shouldn't storage look beautiful in your home? The Nelson platform bench can be used with George Nelson's basic cabinet series in a variety of ways. Set smaller cabinets on top of the bench. Place larger cabinets next to it. Use them in your dining area, bedrooms, even bathrooms.
