Made to the exact same specifications as the original design, our George Nelson-inspired Writing Table is a sleek, minimalist item that fits into almost any fashionable office or stylish living room environment. The smooth white top is at the perfect height for working at, reading the paper or even dining, while its strong aluminium central column adds stability. As one of Nelson's first successful designs, it is a true classic of American furniture design.
As one of the 20th century's most influential American designers, George Nelson was a man who combined pragmatism and whimsy in spectacular and innovative ways. In his quest to create a table with a more sculptural-style leg, he stumbled across the Writing Table's smooth, stable aluminium base, and loved it so much that he re-purposed it for both his Coffee Table and Side Table. Even today, more than 60 years after it was first released, the Writing Table is still a sleek, stylish addition to any office or living room. The range also includes, beside the Coffe Table, the George Nelson Side Table.
1908-1986 (United States)
American industrial designer, George Nelson was one of the founders of American modernism. He was renowned for finding inspiration in the unlikeliest places. Instead of looking for a shape that resembled a human body, Nelson introduced the idea that anything could be turned into a unique furniture design. His most famous pieces are based on coconuts and marshmallows.
