"The single common element in all man-made things is that they are designed."
-George Nelson

The contours of George Nelson's Coconut chair invite you to surround yourself in comfort. Originally introduced by Herman Miller in 1955, the Nelson coconut chair is a 20th century furniture icon. A chair designed to look like a section of coconut shell wasn't a stretch for someone who said, "Total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything." The Coconut chair offers a simple, striking shape, and it's also a very comfortable place to unwind at home or in the private office or lounge.

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.

Combining seat, back, and arms in a single form, the Coconut chair synthesizes art and engineering into a chair that is as beautiful as it is comfortable. Developed to offer freedom of movement, its shallow sides, upholstered curves, and foam- rubber padding invite you to sit in any position, shift at will, and relax with ease.
