Herman Miller Nelson Thin Edge Bed
The process of bringing the Nelson Thin Edge Bed (1954) back into production began at the Herman Miller Archives, where engineers carefully studied vintage pieces and original drawings. In keeping with George Nelson’s vision for a collection capable of adapting to the times, this bed is now available in larger sizes that weren’t commonly available in the 1950s. Solid ash slats replace springs to accommodate an invention that also didn’t exist in Nelson’s day: memory-foam mattresses. Updated finishes reflect new technologies as well as the aesthetic preferences of today’s consumer: Walnut subs for stained ash, while white ash updates the original birch. Yet changes withstanding, the designs are utterly and unmistakably Nelson in their exceptional simplicity and clarity. This is the authentic Nelson Thin Edge Bed by Herman Miller. Mattress not included. Made in Malaysia.
