This elegant small and high storage piece has a vertical volume and is devided with nine small drawers with white knobs on the front. The white laminated top with wood veneer is in a good condition and shows a nice patina.
The cast aluminum four legged spider leg base is very elegant, the smooth organic design makes a nice contrast to the straight lines of the top.

About George Nelson

Often cited as one of the founders of American modernism, industrial designer George Nelson is responsible for some of the most iconic furniture created in the 20th century. His utopian view of design, which he argued in the pages of Architectural Forum where he was an editor in the 1930s and ’40s, resulted in domestic standbys of contemporary domestic architecture, such as the family room and the storage wall. Nelson worked for Herman Miller for over a quarter-century, helping the company come up with their famously functional furniture pieces. Idealistic until the end, Nelson believed that “total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything.”

American, 1908-1986, Hartford, CT, United States
