With his Wall Clocks and Coconut Chair proved George Nelson was responsible for some of the most extraordinary designs of the 1950s. Something beautifully demonstrated by this 1956 Marshmallow Sofa, a work which perfectly defines Nelson's individual style and which today is marketed by the Swiss manufacturer Vitra.
