About the DesignerGeorge 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.
While furniture is undoubtedly the core element of any interior design, it is only when furnishings are combined with decorative and personal items that an atmospherically rich and vibrant collage is created. Fabric, colors, lighting, objects and accessories evoke sensory impressions that allow rooms to be designed and redesigned in line with altered moods and requirements. Natural themes have played a critical role since the earliest known interiors, and are also reflected in the work of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Shaped from maple wood and gently smoothed, "L 'Oiseau" conjures the clarity of the wood objects of Nordic folk art. "L 'Oiseau" adds classic note to modern interiors without being all cutesy or kitschy like many other animal figures.
