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 Nelsons vision for a collection capable of adapting to the times, this bed is now available in larger sizes which werent commonly available in the 1950s in addition to the original twin and full. Solid ash slats have replaced springs to accommodate an invention that also didnt exist in Nelsons day: memory-foam mattresses. Finishes have been updated to reflect new technologies and the aesthetic preferences of todays consumer: Walnut replaces stained ash, and white ash replaces the original birch. The result is unmistakably Nelson iconic designs of exceptional simplicity and clarity. This is the authentic Nelson Thin Edge Bed by Herman Miller. Made in Malaysia.
