George Nelson (1908-1986) was an extremely influential industrial designer, writer, and thinker whose designs are as popular today as perhaps they’ve ever been. Educated in architecture at Yale University in the 1920s, Nelson was a prolific writer on design. He wrote for Architectural Forum and Interiors and published the top-drawer books Tomorrow’s House, How to See: A Guide to Reading Our Man-Made Environment, and Building a New Europe: Portraits of Modern Architects. More important than his writing, however, was his work as an industrial designer. He had a close relationship with the Herman Miller furniture company, for which he served as creative director, which produced his famous works such as the bubble lamp, marshmallow sofa, swag leg desk and dozens of clocks. In 1959 he worked on the exhibition design of the American National Exhibition in Moscow, home of the famous “Kitchen Debate” between then US Vice President Nixon and Soviet Premier Nikita Kruschev. Nelson’s legacy lives on now and he has come to define mid-century American design like few others.
Founded in 1950, Swiss company Vitra produces furniture and accessories that continue to define and shape the landscape of modern design. Begun as a family-owned company, Vitra has manufactured products by design icons including Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Frank Gehry, and Verner Panton. From the Panton Chair originally designed by Verner Panton in 1960 to George Nelson’s Wall Clocks, Vitra’s designs have remained a staple in contemporary homes and offices since the 1950s. The company continues to produce its historic pieces as well as newer design classics including Jasper Morrison’s cork stools, designed in 2006. In addition to its transcendent design manufacturing, Vitra also boasts an impressive design campus that includes the renowned VitraHaus and the Vitra Design Museum—one of the world’s leading museums of design.
