Artist Review: George Nelson

George Nelson is America's most influential architects, furniture designers, and product designer. We can say that he is one of the founding fathers of American modernism. Nelson studied architecture at Yale University and graduated in 1928. He had served as the furniture company Herman Miller's design director for 20 years in collaboration with Ray and Charles Eames, Harry Bertoia, Richard Schultz, Donald Knorr and Isamu Noguchi. His most famous works, the 'Marshmallow' sofa and the Ball Clock are as colorful as candy. Both designs are representative of the early works of pop style furniture.
