Format: Hardcover
This is the catalog/book published by Vitra to coincide with their 2009 retrospective exhibition in Switzerland. It's about the best of most comprehensive history of the furniture, clocks, lighting and other items designed by George Nelson and GEORGE NELSON ASSOCIATES. In the back of the book, there's a detailed checklist with photos of each item Nelson designed, with credit for the actual employee of Nelson Associates who was actually credited with the design. There's also many photographs of products that were designed but did not make it to manufacture!

Absolutely essential reading.

A practice which did it all - and some. His work for Herman Miller stands out as the biggest game changer

The book is Poor printing quality. Less product image. Instead of using too much text to describe Nelson history and background.
