Nelson at Yale

An exhibition on design icon George Nelson makes its final stop at the Yale Center for Architecture this week, showcasing the wide range of work he accomplished. Serving as design director of Herman Miller for close to 30 years – from 1945-1972, he created some of the most well-known designed objects from that era. The exhibition is well worth a visit to see his Vitra clocks, marshmallow sofa, and bubble lamps. The NYTimes also has a wonderful interview with his former secretary and muse, which provides a lovely picture of the architect’s office in its heyday.
