Nessel™ Armchair

from Herman Miller ®

nessel™ armchair

nessel™ armchair

Design Vincent Van Duysen, 2014
Solid ash or walnut, foam & dacron, upholstery
Made in the USA by Geiger®

Lightweight yet robust in materials and construction, the Nessel Chair was created to work in a multitude of spaces: offices, conference rooms, lounges, dining areas, as well as any type of residential setting. Designed with the sitter in mind, it provides maximum comfort in a restrained and elegant form. The chair's solid wood frame can be finished in a range of wood finishes. The Nessel Chair, available with or without arms, is fully upholstered in your choice of fabric or leather.

Classic Modernism was an important influence in Van Duysen's design as was the work of French architect Jean-Michel Frank, who practiced in the thirties and is famous for his clean-lined but sumptuous furniture. Spurred by these sources of inspiration, Van Duysen gave Nessel a simple, yet sophisticated profile, achieved through the use of high-quality and refined materials. The chair is constructed with mortise and tenon joinery and grooved corner blocks for strength and durability. Luxurious upholstery fabric is exactly flush with the frame, and the seams are in perfect alignment.

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.
