One of the rediscovered icons of 20th Century interior design, the Pollock Arm Chair features a sling looped leather seat in a choice of black or natural cowhide, finished with a black cushion. Structurally beautiful, the Pollock was a minor sensation upon its initial release in 1960, before being retired for a generation. Knoll have resurrected the piece as it celebrates its 60th anniversary, with it arguably even more relevant today. The aesthetic remains highly contemporary; with the piece just as much at home alongside modern tastes as it was in the creative advertising spaces of 1960s Madison Avenue. Minimalist in form, but complex in construction, the Pollock Arm Chair is utterly timeless.
American-born Charles Pollock was an industrial designer who was best known for the iconic Pollock Chair.
A common presence in the office of creatives in post-war New York, Pollock’s work was immortalised in the television series Mad Men, with its appearance there inspiring Knoll to reissue the chairs in 2015, with the chairs having been out of production since the mid-1970s.
