After four years on an international tour, the traveling exhibition “George Nelson: Architect, Writer, Designer, Teacher” is winding down its final days at Nelson’s own alma mater: Yale School of Architecture. If you’re in the New Haven, CT, area, you still have a couple of days to see the exhibit, the first of its kind focused on Nelson’s remarkable career (which includes his time as Herman Miller’s Director of Design from 1947 – 1972). Not able to make it before it closes on January 26? Get a glimpse in these photos of the retrospective, which includes more than 120 examples of Nelson’s home and office furnishings, and more than 50 of his drawings, photographs, architectural models, films, and other materials.
