Design by George Nelson, 1952.
By Herman Miller.
Designed to look and feel exquisite, the Nelson™ Thin Edge Buffet was originally produced in 1952 as an application of George Nelson's continuing exploration of storage furniture and modular concepts for storage. Originally called the Rosewood Group due to its use of rosewood veneer, the Thin Edge series was later renamed after the feature that gives it its aesthetic quality: the thin edge framing its doors and drawers. Fifty years since they were last available, the pieces are updated with environmentally sustainable veneers and finishing processes, which share - and honor - the rich personality of rosewood.
The Nelson™ Thin Edge Buffet features four drawers built of solid wood construction with soft closing slides and a two-door cabinet with two adjustable shelves. This buffet was designed to offer a high degree of utility, enabling the storage of objects in an efficient and organized manner with an elevated sense of luxury and graciousness. Comes with 7" polished aluminum legs which can be ordered with height adjustable or fixed glides. Cases are finished with a matte black back or can be veneered if they are to be used in a freestanding space. Aluminum alloy pulls can be ordered with a silver or black inlay (metal pulls have a white inlay). Select Fixed or Adjustable Glides. Then make your pull selection and finish options with Black or Matched cabinet backing.
Minor assembly required. (Drawer pulls will need to be attached.) Backed by Herman Miller's 5-year limited warranty.

Designer: George Nelson
When writing about the course of his remarkable 50-year career, George Nelson described a series of creative "zaps" — moments of out-of-the-blue inspiration "when the solitary individual finds he is connected with a reality he never dreamed of."
Nelson said that for a designer to deal creatively with human needs, "he must first make a radical, conscious break with all values he identifies as antihuman." Designers also must constantly be aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society. In fact, he declared that "total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything." So he said that rather than specializing, designers must cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding.
Nelson did so as few are able, and, with the help of well-timed zaps, he helped define modern, humane design.View other products by George Nelson
