Description

George Nelson was one of the most influential proponents of modernism in the 20th century. As the founder of George Nelson Associates, his firm designed some of the most iconic furniture, lighting and homeware of the mid-century era.

The Coconut Chair by George Nelson is a spacious lounge chair with an instantly recognisable shape that makes a striking accent in any contemporary space. The designer himself compared the chair to a segment of a coconut cut into eight pieces – but with reversed colours. The comfortable one-piece upholstery is covered with leather, and the expansive shell offers great freedom of movement.
