Made to the exact same specifications as the original, our George Nelson-inspired Side Table is a classic example of minimalist, functional American design with a touch of architectural panache. Its smooth white table top allows it match almost any colour scheme, while the stable aluminium central column allows you to place it anywhere in total confidence.
Another example of George Nelson's recycling and expansion on his greatest ideas, the Side Table is based on the Writing Table, released four years prior to the Side Table in 1950. If he found a design that he liked, or simply a solution that solved a problem, Nelson would often adapt and re-use a similar design, as a result, by the mid-50s, there was a whole range of George Nelson Tables, including the Side Table, of various different shapes and sizes. Ideal as a drinks table or bedside table, its smooth top and sculptural aluminium leg adds a touch of panache to any room it sits in.
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.
