Charles Pollock’s one-of-a kind desk chair and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s iconic Barcelona Table recently received attention as sophisticated timeless designs in two widely read style publications.
Hollywood Reporter writer Degen Pener, exploring how to take the home office “from drab to fab,” in his April 14 column, celebrated the Pollock chair. She explains, “A favorite of interior designer Joy Moyler (whose clients have included Leonardo DiCaprio and Adrien Brody), Knoll's Pollock Executive Chair debuted in 1963 and features a 360-degree swivel and pneumatic seat height adjustment.” Pollock described the chair as featuring “rim technology"—the use of a single aluminum band around the chair's perimeter to hold the design together, structurally and visually.
FT How To Spend It—the Financial Times’ online style outlet—writer Christina Ohly Evans uncovered New York-based lighting designer Lindsey Adelman’s “black book of style” in her April 16 editorial. Adelman shared the products that inspire her, including the Knoll Barcelona Table by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Commenting on her proclivity to switch furniture between her homes, Adelman notes, “It’s so elegant…and I know this simple chrome and glass design will work equally well in each of these environments.”
