Description from Design Within Reach
George Nelson’s Platform Bench (1946) is one of the great icons of mid-century modernism. For Herman Miller’s influential design director, utility was as important as beauty, and his spare rectangular bench is the result of this belief. It serves equally well as table, platform base or seating, depending on need and situation. No wonder it’s been called timeless; something this functional never dates. The Platform Bench’s legs are ebonized and finger-jointed for superior strength; also available with metal legs. The optional Bench Cushion is upholstered in felt to add comfort and color to this iconic piece. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller, Inc. Made in U.S.A.
- Materials : Solid maple slats sealed with a clear coat finish; finger-jointed ebonized maple legs; metal glides; OPTIONAL CUSHION, felt upholstery.
