Originally designed by American industrial designer George Nelson, Vitra's Nelson Bench is a design classic from the 1940s. Entirely crafted with lacquered ash, the slats of the solid ash benchtop rest on the base while the pieces are held together with sturdy finger joints. The bench is remarkably strong thanks to its high-quality construction. 

Featuring an airy look with a natural colour scheme, the Nelson Bench boasts highly detailed woodwork and minimalist wooden slat repetition. The straightforward lines of the bench reflect Nelson's architectural background. A sculptural and geometric design is stable and the aesthetic versatility allows it to complete any room of the house. The Nelson Bench is a durable, timeless piece and with its low height, it can also be used as a lounge table or sideboard in a hallway.
