Nelson™ Thin Edge Bed



Herman Miller®

George Nelson worked with Herman Miller for over 25 years as they shepherded design into the modern era. Nelson helped to define modern, humane design.

Nelson said that for a designer to deal creatively with human needs, "he must first make a radical, conscious break with all values that he identifies as anti-human". Designers must also be constantly aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society. In fact, he declared that "total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything". So he said that rather than specialising, designers must cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding.

The Nelson Thin Edge bed was first introduced in 1954, and since then its elegant detailing and expert woodcraft has stood the test of time. Solid Ash slats replace the original design of Danish spring undercarriages, providing more support and durability. Available in either a veneer wood headboard or natural coloured cane back, with either stainless steel H-Frame legs or tapered wood legs.
