George Nelson was the design director at Herman Miller from 1945 to 1972. His influence over three decades is what made the Michigan-based company what it is today. Not only did Nelson recruit Charles and Ray Eames and Isamu Noguchi, but he also created a portfolio of work without which the history of modern design would be incomplete. Together with designers Irving Harper and John Pile, Nelson introduced the Thin Edge Collection (1952), originally called the Rosewood Case Series, as a refined version of the Basic Cabinet Series from 1946. Striking characteristics include the placement of the wood veneer and the especially thin edges, hence the later name. Made today with environmentally sustainable veneers and 85% recycled materials, Thin Edge takes advantage of the latest manufacturing technologies without compromising its original look and feel. Inside the two-door cabinet there are two adjustable shelves. Self-leveling glides adjust to uneven floor surfaces. This is the authentic Thin Edge Buffet produced by Herman Miller, Inc. Nelson is a trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.
