Nelson Cane Bench

While its more austere predecessor, with its wooden slat seat, was designed by George Nelson to discourage guests from lingering in his office, the comfortable Nelson Cane Bench (1952) is sure to encourage any visitor to stay. Offering a pleasing mix of materials, the richly textured cane is surrounded by a wood frame and stands on metal legs. Because the cane is taut but gives ever so slightly, this bench is ideally suited for use as a seat, table, or both. This is the authentic Nelson Bench produced by Herman Miller.

    • Serves as a comfortable seat, coffee table, ottoman, or surface for display.
    • Authentic 1952 design by George Nelson, now back in production.
