Overview

Nelson Basic Cabinet Series Combination 3 by Herman Miller
designed by George Nelson


Nelson Basic Cabinet Series Combination 3 At A Glance:
When combined, they express a greater beauty than alone - George Nelson's Basic Cabinet Series mirror his Japanese influence, and create functional beauty for your home. Expand your storage space; minimize distraction. Available in rift-sawn natural oak and rich light brown walnut veneers. Choose this combination, or create your own.

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 2 Drawer, 2 Door Cabinet provides storage of items large and small, and the Cabinet with Door and Platform Bench give your miscellanea a home while you sit to take your shoes off. This combination is really perfect for a welcoming entryway.

What's Not to Like:
The price seems a bit much to us, but if you're looking for Mid-Century Modern, the alternatives out there don't get much cheaper. This stuff is as functional as it is attractive.

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 Basic Cabinet Series Combination 3 is no exception. It's versatile, sturdy, and built to heirloom-quality standards.

Details:

  • Exquisite touches such as turned aluminum alloy drawer pull
  • Rich veneers add warmth and beauty
  • Bench is solid Maple; choose from the available veneers for the cabinets
  • Small cabinet comes with bench-mount base
  • Can be combined with any of the pieces in the Nelson Basic Cabinet Series

About the 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.
