History: History of designer: George Nelson was one of the founding fathers of American Modernism. As an American industrial designer, he designed a wide variety of modernist furniture. His designs were some of the most iconic pieces of the twentieth century. Before fully realizing his calling, he attended Yale University and did not have any initial plans to become an industrial designer.
After Nelson demonstrated insightful and innovative furniture design, he was offered the opportunity to work freely outside of Herman Miller (the manufacturer that he primarily worked with). However, in 1947, he became Herman Miller's Director of Design and held this esteemed position until the early 1970s.
