George Nelson X-Base Table

2,800.00

George Nelson 1950 X-base dining/writing table design for Herman Miller.
This is not a vintage example.  Nor is it a Herman Miller production.
It was built using a prototype base fabricated some years back for proposed reproduction by Modernica which never went into production.
Elegant nickel plated steel legs following the original design’s simple solid architectural stability rod and straightforward countersunk support brackets.
Custom made top executed by Modern Artifacts according to original dimensions offered on this base along with fabrication specs including 1” thick solid walnut edge and classic white laminate surface.  See closeups.  
Herman Miller reproduction dispenses with original solid wood edge found on some vintage examples, opting instead for less costly veneer edge band along feet that don’t appear to reference vintage version.
Here, seamless feet in black rubber complete graceful line of flared tubular legs but do represent a dissent from original design which offered simple steel cap inserts that slipped into tubed leg.
