Designer: George Nelson
The Nelson swag leg round table has a 48-inch diameter with a walnut veneer top. The work table provides plenty of room to spread out papers; dining tables can also be meeting tables.
Design Story: With his swag leg group, George Nelson didn't try to design an innovation; the innovation resulted from his criteria for the design. He began with the legs, insisting that they be made of metal, machine formed, and prefinished. He also wanted them to be easy for the consumer to assemble, so the desk and tables could ship knocked down to save on costs.
Swaging--using pressure to taper and curve a metal tube--proved the best way to produce the legs, which are 16-gauge steel and have adjustable glides. Nelson added solid walnut stretchers that bolt to the legs for a stable, durable base common to the desk and tables.
NS5852WOU - This 29 3/8"-high round dining table has a walnut veneer top with a walnut edge band, 4 chrome-finished steel-tube legs, 2 solid walnut stretchers, and adjustable glides. Shipped knocked down.
Warranty: Nelson swag leg desk and tables are covered by the Herman Miller Warranty for five years.
