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 founders of the American Modernism movement. We like to think of George Nelson as "The Creator of Beautiful and Practical Things". George Nelson was from a generation of architects who found too few projects and turned successfully toward product, graphic and interior design.

Based in Rome, Nelson met several of the pioneers of modernism while travelling in Europe. Upon returning to the US some years later, he turned 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) and later consultant editor (1944-1949). He defended, sometimes ferociously, the modernist principles and irritated many of his "industrial designer" colleagues who, according to Nelson, bowed too easily to the commercial forces in industry.
