La panca Nelson di Vitra è un classico del design degli anni '40 sviluppato da George Nelson, la cui formazione nel campo dell'architettura è visibile nel design pulito e funzionale della panca. Il fascino della panca Nelson deriva dai sottili pezzi di legno di frassino con spazi vuoti tra di loro. I pezzi sono tenuti insieme con giunzioni forti e sostenuti da due gambe angolari nere. Oltre che come seduta, la panca Nelson può essere usata anche come tavolino da appoggio o come tavolino per il salotto.
Panca Nelson, corta, frassino
L’americano George Nelson (1908–1986) si laureò in architettura presso l’Università di Yale e, negli anni ’30, studiò a Roma, dove si familiarizzò con l’architettura ed il design europei. Dopo essere tornato negli Stati Uniti, Nelson iniziò a lavorare per l’azienda Herman Miller dove divenne ben presto Direttore del Design.
Durante la lunga carriera Nelson disegnò numerosi mobili e lampade molto noti. George Nelson lavorò per Herman Miller fino al 1972 e insieme a designer quali Charles e Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi e Alexander Girard, creò le basi per le iconiche collezioni di Vitra. Tra i suoi design più famosi troviamo Nelson Bench (1946), il simpatico Marshmallow Sofa (1956) e un’ampia collezione di orologi (1948–1960), i più noti dei quali sono probabilmente Ball Clock, Sunflower Clock e Eye Clock.Guarda tutti i prodotti

”Very good service. Unfortunately some plates were broken. Finnish design shop quickly responds and sends us new ones. That’s how service should be.”
”Finnish Design Shop is the first place I go to furnish and decorate my newly renovated house, thanks to their beautiful, high-quality products and their excellent customer service.”
”I’m crazy for the Finnish Design Shop, and all that I’ve bought from them. And when questions arose (regarding a bookshelf that needed clever assembly), their representatives in Finland were so helpful and thoughtful.”
”Both my purchases were excellent quality, priced at a very reasonable level and delivered in a matter of days despite me being the other side of the World. There is simply no way to describe that kind of a Company except amazingly good.”
”Amazing products, beautiful website, speedy and secure postage worldwide... what’s not to love? Nothing cheap here, that’s for sure, but this is perfect for special treats, and there’s IKEA for the rest! ;)”

”This is my fifth time shopping at Finnish design. Absolutely satisfied and happy with products and shopping experience. In looove with each item ❤️ Thank you for making my home cosy and beautiful.”
”I ordered a HAY side table that was on back order everywhere else. It was a few hundred crowns more at Finnish Design Shop, but shipped the next day and was delivered to my door two days later, which I think was worth the extra cost. It came well-packaged, protected and the item is in perfect condition. I’m happy and would shop here again.”
”We purchased a Hay Snowden Kettle from the Finnish Design Shop - unfortunately there was a fault with the Kettle but this was professionally and quickly dealt with by the Olli on the After Sales team, so we can recommend them for their great customer service and after-sales experience.”
”Fast delivery. Ordered a hammock for my mothers birthday to be delivered at her adress. It’s in a somewhat rural area, but it was delivered at her door regardless. Great service.”
”I’ve bought at Finnish Design Shop many times over the years and I have always been extremely satisfied. Love their range of products (from classics to new awe-inspiring designs). Moreover they have very nice and helpful support team so I would always recommend!”
