The Coconut Chair, a prime example of 1950s design, is distinguished by its humorous undertones, formal clarity and minimal use of materials. The designer himself, George Nelson, compared the armchair with a coconut cut into eight parts, though he reversed the colours: the outer shell of the Coconut Chair is white, while the one-piece cushion is covered with high-quality leather. By evoking the natural, spacious shape of a shell, Nelson created an inviting and comfortable armchair that allows the sitter to assume a wide variety of positions.
Generously padded with a thick, one-piece foam rubber cushion upholstered in supple black leather. The third corner—the one that forms the backrest—is just slightly longer than the two on the sides. That’s where the comfort comes from.
The upholstery is molded into the simple, striking plastic shell, which is lightweight but sturdy. It sits atop a clean, bent-steel, three-legged base with tough nylon glides. Durability. Built in.
