Sunburst clocks, swag-leg armchairs: the designs of George Nelson have come to define the mid-century modern aesthetic. In honor of Nelson's 100th birthday comes this exhibition catalogue for the first comprehensive retrospective of the work of the designer, one of the most influential figures in American design during the second half of the twentieth century. Full color, extensively illustrated, this book from the Vitra Design Museum is a fitting tribute to this seminal figure. With eight essays by German and American design historians, the publication deals with all of the areas in Nelson's oeuvre, many of which are presented here for the first time. The majority of illustrations, previously unpublished, come from the Nelson Estate in the Vitra Design Museum Archive.
