Design by George Nelson and Irving Harper, 1956.
By Herman Miller.

The playful Marshmallow Sofa is a landmark of modern design that's still turning heads and making people smile. The sofa originated from the discs that are its hallmark. Designers George Nelson and Irving Harper were approached by an inventor who had created an injection plastic disc in 1956. He insisted the disc could be produced inexpensively and would be durable. So the designers took a look and arranged 18 of them on a steel frame. The inventor's cushions turned out to be impractical, but Nelson and Harper were intrigued by the design they had created so casually, and Herman Miller decided to manufacture the sofa. By joining separate elements and making them appear to float on air, Nelson and Harper achieved this sofa's unique appearance and eye-catching appeal, which led the way into the pop art style of the 1960s. The Marshmallow Sofa was reintroduced by Herman Miller in 1999 after a 34-year hiatus.

Cushions can be detached for easy cleaning and interchanged to equalize wear or create a new look. Select upholstery type and color.
