George Nelson Replica
George Nelson was an American architect and industrial designer who was widely considered a 'founding-father' of the American Modernist Movement. Born in 1908, he stumbled upon his interest for architecture when he ran into Yale University's Architecture School to escape the rain. He later got accepted to the School and graduated in 1928. Also a prolific writer, he is cited with introducing the works of fellow designers Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier to North America.   Nelson said that for a designer to deal creatively with human needs, "he must first make a radical, conscious break with all values he identifies as anti-human." He also declared that "total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything."  This revolutionary mentality feeds into his highly aesthetic, yet pleasing designs.
