Vitra Miniature George Nelson Marshmallow Sofa

Vitra Miniatures Collection.
George Nelson is one of the most influential personalities in U.S. design after 1945. As of 1946 he was for many years head of the Design Department at Herman Miller, on whose behalf he engaged designers hardly known at the time, such as Charles Eames, Noguchi and Alexander Girard. He was also inspired by other areas of culture: along with his work as an architect, he concerned himself with ongoing sociological and artistic themes.
Nelson’s Marshmallow Sofa must be considered one of the earliest "Pop Art" furniture designs: the transformation of a traditional sofa into a three dimensional structure made of soft, colored cushioning. The seat and back are supported by a steel construction and the unit has the shape of an axially symmetrical folded-out waffle.
