George Nelson Home Office Desk
All original, Home Office Desk, model 4658 by George Nelson and George Nelson Associates for Herman Miller. This seminal desk was designed in 1946, paving the road for modern office design. Nelson's desk re-imagined and redefined working spaces, such that its presence remains pertinent and relevant today. A important piece in American design history. Our example is from the 1950s and is in very good vintage condition. Age-appropriate wear to the leather surface, with some discoloration to the right side of the roll-top.
Floating back features leather covered doors with shelves inside. Fold-out compartment extends the work surface and reveals ultra roomy pullout drawers and additional shelving within. Perforated steel file holder in our example has scarce, rarely seen leather cover. Tubular chrome plated steel hardware and legs support this system with air and grace. Marked with the Herman Miller label on the underside.
