Apartment Therapy, Dezeen, Design Milk and Gear Patrol Celebrate the Reintroduced Pollock Arm Chair

July 7, 2014

Apartment Therapy, Dezeen, Design Milk and Gear Patrol celebrate the Pollock Arm Chair, which was reintroduced to the KnollStudio portfolio this month after a nearly 35-years hiatus.

Designed by the late Charles Pollock in 1960 and manufactured by Knoll from 1964-1979, the Pollock Chair “is most remembered for its iconic, minimalist design, where form followed function,” Gear Patrol declares.

“The minimal chair stands the test of time with its polished chrome steel tube frame, cast aluminum arms, and natural cowhide seat, making this comfortable chair the perfect modern classic for today’s design lovers,” writes Design Milk.

The Pollock Arm Chair is exemplary of the designer’s elegant use of a simple bent line, which in his chairs worked in three ways: as structure, durability and visual style.

Dezeen writes, the Pollock Executive Chair, “also designed for Knoll, has become an iconic symbol of mid-20th century workplaces.”
