SOLD 2018 Nelson Swag Leg Armchair by George Nelson for Herman Miller
This is a Swag Leg Armchair, designed by George Nelson for Herman Miller in 1958. This example is a newer production piece, produced circa 2018. This sculpted chair is made of a molded polypropylene plastic seat, and has curved chromed-steel legs. It features wide, flat armrests so that one may rest their forearms while seated. An interesting design detail is a slit between the seat and back, which was developed to prevent heat build-up. Many of the elements in Nelson’s designs were based on research by actual implementation in an office scenario.
The chair is 31 inches tall, 29 inches wide and 20 inches deep. It has a seat height of 18 inches. While this piece is pre-owned and may show signs of use, it remains in excellent condition.
