It has been more than half a century since the late Charles Pollock designed what was then called the Model 657, a minimal chair of polished chrome steel tubing and natural cowhide. The 657 blended comfort, functionality and, of course, style.
Florence Knoll, seeing the design for the first time, declared it “gold.” Known today simply as the Pollock Arm Chair, it initiated Pollock’s design relationship with Knoll.
The designer went on to create the best-selling Pollock Executive Chair, which has remained in production since 1965. In fact, the Executive Chair has been so popular that it has in many ways overshadowed Pollock’s first Knoll chair, despite its beautiful linearity and simple responsiveness to the sitter’s position. Today, Knoll is pleased to reintroduce the Pollock Arm Chair, a modern classic for the home. Read the entire story at Knoll Inspiration.
