Additional Information


The process of bringing the Nelson Thin Edge Bed (1954) back into production began at the Herman Miller Archives, where engineers carefully studied vintage pieces and original drawings. In keeping with Nelson’s vision for a collection capable of adapting to the times, this bed is now available in larger sizes – which weren’t commonly available in the 1950s – in addition to the original twin and full. Solid ash slats have replaced springs to accommodate an invention that also didn’t exist in Nelson’s day: memory-foam mattresses.

The result is unmistakably Nelson – iconic designs of exceptional simplicity and clarity. This is the authentic Nelson Thin Edge Bed by Herman Miller. Made in Malaysia.

  • Twin, full and queen platforms ship fully assembled. King and Cal. king platforms ship as two halves.
