DESIGNER: George Nelson
The popularity of the Coconut Chair isn’t a tough one to crack. This striking design has found a place in many design museums, and its inviting curves have landed it in a number of homes around the world. Originally designed for comfort and movement, it’s been updated with new, more sustainable materials and more upholstery options - all in the spirit of George Nelson’s iconic design.
The Coconut Lounge Chair is true to its original 1955 design—but with updated materials that are consistent with Herman Miller’s commitment to sustainability. The enhanced technology also reduces emissions and better protects manufacturing employees. These updates mirror the modifications made to the Eames fiberglass chairs. After all, it was Nelson who said, “Design is a response to social change."
