"Total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything." -George Nelson

Unapologetically playful and gracefully supported by a sculpted, tapered base, George Nelson's vibrant Pedestal Stool is a welcome reissue of its original 1954 design. The stool shifts effortlessly from everyday spaces to formal settings, with a compact size that allows it to fit into tighter spaces or to be grouped together in a larger environment to add color, interest, and utility.

Herman Miller founder D.J. DePree saw an article in a 1945 Life magazine featuring George Nelson's Storagewall unit, which was causing a sensation in the furniture industry. He was so impressed that he paid a visit to Nelson in New York and convinced him to be his director of design, which spurred Nelson to found his design firm, George Nelson & Associates. The warm personal and professional relationship between Nelson and DePree yielded a stunning range of products, from the playful Marshmallow Sofa to the first L-shaped desk, a precursor of today's workstation.
