The “Designer of Modern Design”. George Nelson was one of the most influential figures in postwar US design. As a prolific writer, designer and creative thinker, Nelson’s work includes architecture, furniture, lamps, clocks, exhibits, identity programs, graphics, urban development, numerous books, articles and visual documentaries. He was the lead designer for the 1959 American National Exhibition in Moscow for the 1959 U.S.S.R. –U.S.A. exchange, and introduced America to the Russian people.
Nelson said that for a designer to deal creatively with human needs, “he must first make a radical, conscious break with all values he identifies as antihuman.” Designers also must constantly be aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society. In fact, he declared that “total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything.” So he said that rather than specializing, designers must cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding. Today, George Nelson’s designs are widely recognized in the world, his famous furniture designs such as the “ball” clock, the Platform bench, the Coconut chair and the Marshmallow chair are as popular as ever.
