In contrast to the trend of adapting sitting furniture to the requirements of the human body, George Nelson designs sitting objects from the formal repertoire of spontaneous, popular everyday culture. The shapes he used were strongly stimulated by the art of the 1950s. His symbolic statements promoted a new, very casual form of sitting. Nelson’s Coconut Chair was inspired by the coconut shell. The seat consists of a glass-fibre reinforced plastic shell with upholstery. The three-legged base of tubular steel is stabilized using fine crossbars. One has the impression that the frame spans the floating, swinging form taut and fixes it to the floor.

The original of the Coconut Chair was designed by George Nelson in 1955 and it is produced as 1:1 model by the Vitra AG, Basel/Switzerland since 1988.

The here offered miniature by Vitra (scale 1:6) consists of polished aluminium, steel sheet, foam and leather.
