George N. Bench

The 1946 design displays clean, crisp lines and a slender, simplistic profile, that makes for the popularity of the George N. Bench. The structure of the bench reflects N.’s architectural background, which puts focus on proportion and balance of the form. This modern piece can be used as a bench or an occasional table and its minimalistic design will integrate perfectly with any surrounding.

ItaliaDesigns produces George N. Bench with solid wooden slats in a choice of colours on top of black metal legs. There is also the option of adding a glass top.

About the Designer

George N.

George N.

George Nelson (1908-1986) was, together with Charles & Ray Eames, one of the founding fathers of American modernism. We like to think of George Nelson as "The Creator of Beautiful and Practical Things". George Nelson was part of a generation of architects that found too few projects and turned successfully toward product, graphic and interior design. Based in Rome he travelled through Europe where he met a number of the modernist pioneers. A few years later he returned to the U.S.A. to devote himself to writing. Through his writing in "Pencil Points" he introduced Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Gio Ponti to North America. At "Architectural Forum" he was first associate editor (1935- 1943) an later consultant editor (1944-1949). He defended sometimes ferociously the modernist principles and irritated many of his colleagues who as "industrial designers" made, according to Nelson too many concessions to the commercial forces in industry.
