George Nelson (1908-1986) was a pioneering modernist who ranks with such outstanding American designers as Raymond Loewy, Charles Eames, and Eliot Noyes. Nelson's office produced some of the twentieth century's canonical pieces of industrial design, many of which are still in production: the ball clock, the bubble lamp, and the sling sofa.

Yale School of Architecture will celebrate the life and work of iconic designer and Yale alumnus George Nelson (1928–1986), in the first retrospective exhibition and symposium devoted to the innovator of such defining landmarks of American style as the “marshmallow sofa,” the office cubicle, and the concept of the “family room.”
