Notes from the archive: George Nelson is one of the most influential designers of the 20th Century. He was Herman Miller's design director in the 40's and introduced the public to Charles and Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi, and Alexander Girard. The designs from his studio include iconic clocks, lamps, benches, tables, couches and storage systems. The book guides you through Nelson's eyes to recognize, evaluate and understand the objects and the landscape of the man-made world we live in, and the ways objects give meaning to the human experience.
