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 or fabric in a variety of colours. 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.
