"Good design, like good painting, cooking, architecture or whatever you like, is a manifestation of the capacity of the human spirit to transcend its limitations." -George Nelson

Designed by George Nelson for Herman Miller in 1968, the striking Nelson Cube Lounge Chair is a study in the dichotomy of hard and soft. Nelson paired an architectural wooden frame substantial enough to anchor any space and soft, tufted cushions that invite relaxation. Reintroduced in 2022 with new fabric options, Cube sits as beautifully in a lounge as it does in an office.

* Outer frame consists of exposed natural hardwood in either Oak, Walnut, or Ebony finishes
* Internal frame is steel reinforced solid hardwood
* Internal cushions are high resiliency foam
* Cushions are attached and swing outward for easy cleaning
* Tri-mitered edge detailing on frame
* Contrasting fabric panel under back cushions in Maharam Mode (intaglio) with buttons that match upholstery choice

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 to 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 buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father in law as 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 & Ray Eames the company produced legendary classics of industrial design.
