Whether working with the designers at Herman Miller or his Manhattan studio team, George Nelson knew how to bring out the best in people by encouraging them to experiment and play. George Mulhauser arrived fresh from Pratt with a portfolio filled with sketches, one of which evolved into the Coconut Chair (1955) under Nelson’s tutelage. Named for its shell-fragment shape that invites lounging in a variety of positions, Coconut is clever in how it integrates seat, back and arms into one simple form. This is the authentic Coconut Chair by Herman Miller. Nelson is a trademark of Herman Miller, Inc. Made in Germany.
