Introduced in 1946 and reissued in 1994, the Nelson™ Platform Bench bench stands as a landmark of modern design.

Equal parts seat and surface, this landmark design emerged from George Nelson’s Fortune magazine office to join his first Herman Miller collection in 1946.

It’s whatever you need it to be—a platform for displaying artwork or plants, a bench for seating, or a low table for magazines, a bowl of candy, a TV, or a CD player. The platform bench is a multipurpose display and resting place in offices, public areas, and homes; with its clean, spare lines, it is also a striking accent piece.

The platform bench is made of solid maple, with slats spaced to let light and air through and legs finger-jointed for superior strength.

Made with polished chrome or ebonized wood legs, equipped with leveling glides, and available in three lengths, it is ideal as a bench, low table, or foundation for the Basic Cabinet Series.

 

Top options: Maple or Walnut top

Leg options: Ebonized wood base with metal leveling glides Or trivalent chrome metal base

Also available: upholstered cushion fits on a Nelson™ platform bench.
