Marshmallow Sofa - Crepe

Overview


Marshmallow Sofa - Crepe. Inspired by the designer: George Nelson.


Description


The inspiration for the Nelson Marshmallow Sofa (1956) was launched when an inventor approached George Nelson and Irving Harper with a planned "self-skinned" injection plastic disc that would be inexpensive to produce and unerringly durable.

As the proposed cushions had a maximum diameter of 12", the designers perched 18 of them atop a steel frame. Sadly, the inventor's vision for high-resiliency, low-cost cushions never came to fruition, but the design was so compelling that Herman Miller chose to produce it anyway. Designed with both residential and commercial applications in mind, the cushions are detachable for easy cleaning and therefore interchangeable to equalize wear.

•Upholstery: Italian top-grain semi-aniline leather on ALL sides
