george nelson bench cushion

Design George Nelson™, 1946
Upholstery, polyurethane foam, velcro
Made by Herman Miller

George Nelson designed the first version of his Platform Bench to discourage visitors to his New York office from staying too long. He figured that having to sit on a slatted bench would be uncomfortable enough to drive people he didn't want to see away. It didn't work. People liked the bench, and they stayed. But if you want to make sure people sit on your Nelson Platform Bench, this handsome cushion will do the trick.

The Platform Bench Cushion is available in two widths-24 and 36 inches. It attaches to the bench with Velcro® fasteners attached to straps that fit around the bench slats. The cushion is made of a single piece of polyurethane foam, for superior comfort and durability.

Available in a variety of fabric or leather upholstery options. Bench sold separately.

24" cushion: 24" w | 18.5" d | 1.5" h
36" cushion: 36" w | 18.5" d | 1.5" h
