George Nelson - design legend
George Nelson was born in the USA in 1908. He studied architecture at Yale University. From 1932-34 he was able to continue his studies at the American Academy in Rome thanks to a scholarship, thus he came into contact with the buildings and designers of modernism in Europe.
In the 1940s Nelson became the design director of Herman Miller. This position made him a kind of key figure in American design. He not only designed furniture for the home and office but also brought famous names such as Charles & Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi and Alexander Girard to the manufacturer. In 1957 the Vitra founder Willi Fehlbaum signed the first license agreement with Herman Miller for furniture production in Europe and a close friendship developed.
This relationship resulted in numerous designs that today are among the absolute classics of modern design history.
