Japan had a profound effect on George Nelson. During his first trip to Tokyo in 1951 and several more that decade, Nelson became fascinated with all things Japanese. That influence is evident in the 1952 design of this Miniature Chests. Reminiscent of tansu, cabinets with many small drawers used for storing a variety of items, the Nelson Miniature Chests provide wonderful little places to keep things. An interesting addition to nearly any room - whether at home or the office - these chests embody what Nelson appreciated most in Japanese design: "a sense of fitness in the relationship between hand, material, use, and shape."
This tall 9-drawer miniature chest includes drawers arranged vertically and a four-star aluminum base with adjustable glides. Cabinetmakers hand fit each drawer for proper alignment to ensure the wood-on-wood drawer glides operate smoothly. This cabinet is brand new and in perfect condition.
