The Nelson bench of the Vitra is a design classic from the 1940s, a design by George Nelson, whose architecture background is reflected in the sleek, functional design of the bench. The airy charm of the Nelson sofa comes from thin slats of ash with spaces in between. These are held together with strong connection and supported by two ash-black black supports.
