Design George Nelson™, 1952
Plywood, veneer, polished aluminum, metal
Made by Herman Miller®

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

Designed to look and feel exquisite, these cabinets, chests, and cases were produced in 1952 as application of George Nelson's continuing exploration of storage furniture, first introduced in 1945 in a Life magazine feature on his modular "Storagewall" concept.

Originally called the Rosewood Group due to its use of rosewood veneer, this group was later renamed after the feature that gives it its aesthetic quality: the thin edge framing the doors and drawers. Fifty years since they were last available, the pieces are updated with environmentally sustainable veneers and finishing processes, including santos palisander, which shares - and honors - the rich personality of rosewood.

The chest features your choice of either three or four drawers built of solid wood construction with soft closing slides. It includes 7" inch polished aluminum legs with adjustable glides and your choice of drawer pulls. Back panel can be requested finished to match or unfinished (matte black). Ships partially assembled, drawer pulls need to be attached. Please note: it should be expected to have variation in both grain & color characteristics between multiple products…no 2 products will look exactly alike.

Please note:
- walnut/dark brown combination, the case finish is walnut & drawers/door fronts are dark brown walnut.
- white ash/walnut combination, the case finish is white ash & drawers/door fronts are walnut.

chest: 18.5” d | 34” w | 28.6” h | legs: 7" polished aluminum
