"Design is a response to social change."
-George Nelson

In the 1940s, George Nelson was at the forefront of the trend toward modernism in design. The Nelson Basic Cabinet Series, designed in 1946, is a clean-lined, functional, and versatile modular storage system that fits the way you live now and the way you will live tomorrow.

The definition of classic is "a work of enduring excellence." And the Basic Cabinet Series is a perfect example. This series includes an open cabinet with drawer and a closed cabinet with door. You can use one cabinet alone or mix and match them with the other cabinets and Platform Bench to create a storage and seating configuration that suits your space needs.

All of these cabinets are available without legs, so they can be stacked atop each other or the platform bench, or with legs, for freestanding use. Legs are 5.5" high, black-finished, solid wood. Cabinets are available in two finish options-light brown walnut or natural oak. Drawer and door pulls are custom aluminum alloy.

Clean profiles with functional elements make each cabinet in this collection a model of efficiency. The Basic Cabinet Series is known for its practical storage areas and handsomely designed exteriors. As with everything George Nelson designed, it's all about the flexibility, efficiency and the good looks, of course.

George Nelson

George Nelson (1908–1986) was an American industrial designer, and one of the founders of American Modernism. While Director of Design for the Herman Miller furniture company, both Nelson, and his design studio, George Nelson Associates, Inc., designed much of the 20th century's most iconic modernist furniture. George Nelson attended Yale University, not originally intending become an architect. He happened upon the architecture school while ducking into the building to get out of the rain, and was impressed by an exhibition inside. He graduated with a degree in architecture in 1928. During his final year at Yale, Nelson was hired by the architecture firm Adams and Prentice as a drafter.
Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with “modern” furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.
