At the end of the 50s, the working world became modern: with the emergence of the service economy, more and more office workplaces were created. Of course, the furnishings were all about rationalisation: the furniture had to be practical, durable, and inexpensive.

At the same time, however, they should also radiate progressiveness and optimism – because the design of office space was also becoming increasingly important as a component of corporate identity. From the Aluminium Group by Charles & Ray Eames to Arne Jacobsen’s famous HEW-building in Hamburg: many mid-century designers have developed some of their most convincing designs for the office.

George Nelson’s „Modular System“ – and his „Steel Frame Collection“, which he designed in 1954 for the office furniture manufacturer Herman Miller, and which is now less common – became very well known. It includes seating, sideboards, and tables, all based on steel frames in white or black.
