Unlike the trend of basing seat furniture on the demands of the human body, the seat designs by George Nelson Office are inspired by popular contemporary culture.
The forms he used were strongly inspired by the art of the 1950s, creating a relaxed form of sitting.
Nelson's Coconut Chair was inspired by a coconut shell. The seat consists of a glassfibre-strengthened plastic seat with upholstery. The tripod base made of steel tubes is stabilised by thin crossbars. This creates the impression that the frame tightly spans the floating, swaying shape and pins it to the floor.
The Vitra miniatures are as close as possible to the full-size designs, and because they are handmade, they take a long time to produce.
This miniature is made of real leather, glassfibre-strengthened plastic and has a steel base.
