Herman Miller ® Nelson ™ Swag Leg Armchair - Quick Ship

The Nelson Swag Leg Group is a revival of an historic collection by George Nelson. Introduced in 1958, the group's evocative pieces have a look, scale, and function that are simply right for today. These classic, sculpted designs can be used individually or together in the home or office, from meeting spaces to offices and dining areas. The DesignWith his Swag Leg Group, George Nelson didn't try to design an innovation; the innovation resulted from his criteria for the design. He began with the legs, insisting that they be made of metal, machine formed, and pre-finished. ''Swaging'' -- using pressure to taper and curve a metal tube -- proved to be the best way to produce Nelson's legs, which are made of 16-gauge steel and have adjustable glides.The chair presented a bigger problem: How to connect four legs. Thanks to some ingenious engineering, the resulting base looks natural and simple. As one early observer said, it ''grows up like four tree roots and unites into one strong upward thrust.''For the chair shell, Nelson got permission from Charles and Ray Eames to use the patented process they developed for molding plastic. Nelson took the process a step further and created separate seat and back shells that he glued together. With 21st century innovations in technology and material, today's shells are fully authentic and made of recyclable polypropylene.

Herman Miller Swan Leg "Sore Butt Chair

Mistaken Buyer from New York City

This chair is one of the most uncomfortable chair that i've ever bought! Read some good review about this chair, decided to purchase it. You won't want to sit on this chair for more than 20 minutes, it hurts your butt like sitting on a rock. Looks great, doesn't work!

Nelson Swag Leg Chair- Simply Beautiful!

Imelda from San Francisco Bay Area– Verified Buyer

Beautiful and stylish chairs--it makes a great statement in our home. What's very surprising is that it is equally comfortable for me who is 5'4 and my husband who is 6'2. The only drawback after the first month was that it got dirty in some places. Someone recommended the Magic Eraser (Mr. Clean) to clean it and it worked beautifully!

About the Designer

George Nelson

George Nelson United States (1908 - 1986)

George Nelson began his design for what became the Swag Leg Group with the simple desire to create furniture with a sculptured leg. Beyond beauty, he sought practicality, insisting that the legs be made of metal, machine formed and pre-finished. The Nelson Swag Leg Group is a revival of an historic collection by George Nelson. Introduced in 1958, the group's evocative pieces have a look, scale, and function that are simply right for today. These classic, sculpted designs can be used individually or together in the home or office, from meeting spaces to offices and dining areas.

About the Manufacturer

Herman Miller ®: The name is synonymous with innovation, design, operational excellence, smart application of technology, and social responsibility. Herman Miller ® studies work and living environments and designs and delivers products and services that make these environments work better. Through problem-solving research and design, the company seeks to develop innovative solutions to real needs in working, healing, learning, and living environments. Herman Miller ® began in 1923 as a manufacturer of traditional residential furniture, became a leader in "modern" furniture in the 1930s and 1940s; developed lasting ties through the 1950s with legendary industrial designers who led the company in new directions; transformed the office furniture industry with the first panel system in the 1960s; invented and refined ergonomic work seating in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s; reinvented the geometry of systems furniture in 2000, and is today the second largest office furniture company with customers and locations around the world. Their history of employee participation and ownership and technological innovation has long roots and continues to grow. They have always worked hard to be serious about both people and business. They look at their primary goal as creating great places to work. George Nelson laid out five tenets of Herman Miller ® design philosophy 50 years ago: What you make is important. Design is an integral part of the business. The product must be honest. You decide what you will make. There is a market for good design. While fashion and style have their place, the main criterion for a Herman Miller ® product has remained constant: Does it truly solve a problem that people care about in a way that improves upon other solutions, or pioneers a new and better answer altogether? The answer is Yes.
