For George Nelson, design wasn’t about things; it was about identifying problems and providing sensible solutions. The art of reduction was one of the many areas in which Nelson excelled, and he always challenged himself “to do much more with much less.” That approach led to the simple yet sleek design of the Nelson Daybed (1950), which he originally designed for his own home in 1941. For nearly a decade, he continued to streamline it, and when he was finally satisfied, the daybed became part of the Herman Miller collection in 1950. The next chapter for this timeless piece begins with you. This Daybed swiftly converts from sofa to bed with the removal of the bolster. This is the authentic Nelson Daybed by Herman Miller. Made in Malaysia.
