Marshmallow Sofa by George Nelson

Posted under Uncategorized

Designers George Nelson and his associate Irving Harper had a fascination with the atom. In their 1956 marshmallow sofa, as in the ball clock before it, they exploded the sofa’s parts into separate elements. This atom-like appearance puts elegant emphasis on function to create a pared-down look. Multi-colored vinyl cushions – like 18 giant, 10″ marshmallows – attach to a brushed tubular steel frame with satin black legs. Each cushion removes for easy cleaning. The result is what the original Herman Miller catalog called an “astonishing appearance” that fits wherever you need a bit of drama. Dimensions: 52″w x 33″d x 32 1/2″h
