Unusual: Coconut Chair by Vitra

Designer George Nelson himself compared his Coconut Chair with a cut coconut - but the colour design is the other way round: white on the outside and coloured on the inside.

The unusual 1955 design has long since developed into a design icon and was already ahead of its time.

George Nelson - design legend

George Nelson was born in 1908 in the USA. He studied architecture at Yale University. From 1932-34 he was able to continue his studies thanks to a scholarship at the American Academy in Rome, where he came into contact with modern buildings and designers in Europe.

In the 1940s, Nelson became Herman Miller's design director. This position made him a key figure in American design. He not only designed furniture for the home and office but also brought well-known names such as Charles & Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi and Alexander Girard to the company. In 1957 the Vitra founder Willi Fehlbaum concluded the first licence agreement with Herman Miller for furniture production in Europe and a close friendship developed between him and George Nelson.

This relationship resulted in numerous designs that today are among the absolute classics of modern design history.
