Nelson Cabinet with Door by Herman Miller
designed by George Nelson


Nelson BCS Cabinet with Door At A Glance:
The Nelson Basic Cabinet Series' versatility is highlighted in this simple cabinet with one door. Just one piece of the Basic Cabinet Series, the cabinet can be mounted on the Platform Bench or be placed on the floor if wood legs are chosen. One shelf rests behind the door for you to stash things within. The simple construction and optional wood legs express George Nelson's fascination with the Japanese culture and their design aesthetic. Choose from rift-sawn natural oak or light brown walnut veneers to suit your taste.

George Nelson's vision was a living space full of things that had purpose and place but were flexible enough to change. In 1955 he stated, "People today no longer inhabit large houses with large rooms ... furniture has to fit these new dimensions comfortably and gracefully. Moreover, it has to be flexible." He created the Basic Cabinet Series in that spirit, and it has now been re-introduced by Herman Miller after being out of production since 1958.

What's To Like:
The simple, Japanese-inspired lines of this cabinet give it a serene presence in your home - unlike furniture with more ornamentation, it's able to blend in anywhere you place it. The only time it'll draw attention to itself is when you use it; that's when you'll notice how well-crafted it is.

What's Not to Like:
Almost $800 bucks for a cabinet seems a bit much to us, but if you're looking for Mid-Century Modern, the alternatives out there don't get much cheaper.

The Bottom Line:
The Nelson Basic Cabinet Series simply reminds us that less is more, and that Herman Miller makes some of the finest furniture out there. Despite its price, the Nelson Cabinet with Door is no exception. It's versatile, sturdy, and built to heirloom-quality standards.

Designer

George NelsonGeorge Nelson
When writing about the course of his remarkable 50-year career, George Nelson described a series of creative "zaps" - moments of out-of-the-blue inspiration "when the solitary individual finds he is connected with a reality he never dreamed of." It was these zaps that would lead to the creation of some of the most original furniture designs of the 20th century - including the Coconut Chair, the Marshmallow Sofa, and the Basic Cabinet Series.

An early zap came in the 1930s, when he was an architectural student in Rome. Before returning home, an idea struck him: He would travel Europe and interview leading modern architects, hoping to get the articles published in the U.S. He succeeded, and in the process introduced the U.S. design community to the European avant-garde. This set in motion a sequence of what he called "lucky" career breaks that were really the inevitable outcomes of his brilliance as a designer, teacher, and author.
