George Nelson in Two Dimensions

There is one more month to see George Nelson: Architect, Writer, Designer, Teacher, an exhibition at the Yale School of Architecture Gallery that closes February 2. Even if you’ve seen enough knock-off Marshmallow Sofas to last a lifetime, I’d recommend it. The Nelson office’s greatest furniture hits are ranged around the central square of Paul Rudolph’s stepped gallery space, and, sitting up on modular platforms, their suggestive shapes and vibrant colors do hold the room. But the really interesting material (organized by the Vitra Design Museum and its chief curator Jochen Eisenbrand) is around the edges.
