What kind of person thinks up a chair that looks like a piece of coconut? How about the person who came up with the Marshmallow Sofa? Both designs are the creations of George Nelson and his team. It was Nelson who said, “Total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything.” In acting on this belief, he brought modernism to American furniture, to say nothing of fun, with designs like the Coconut Chair.
Generously padded with a thick, one-piece foam rubber cushion upholstered in supple black leather. The third corner (the one that forms the backrest) is just slightly longer than the two on the sides. That’s where the comfort comes from. The upholstery is moulded into the simple, striking plastic shell, which is lightweight but sturdy. It sits on top of a clean, bent-steel, three-legged base with tough nylon glides.
This chair has a 1-piece foam cushion upholstered in black leather, a white molded plastic shell, and a polished chrome base.
