Vintage 1979 Executive Chairs designed by Charles Pollock for Knoll. The chairs come in their burnt orange upholstery, a perfect mid-century modern color! It is truly a miracle to find these decades old chairs with their original fabric in such great condition. The chairs swivel 360 have a tilt adjuster to modify the pitch of the seat. First designed in 1963, Pollock’s timeless design continues to be produced by Knoll in a variety of finishes.
The Pollock Executive Chair features what the designer described as “rim technology”—the use of a single aluminum band around the chair’s perimeter to hold the design together, structurally and visually. Fifty years after its introduction, the Pollock Chair continues to exude timeless elegance in any home or office.
About Charles Pollock
After graduating from Pratt Institute and working with George Nelson, Charles Pollock assembled a portfolio of designs and presented them to Florence Knoll and began working on the 657 Lounge sling chair in 1961. Pollock again demonstrated his command of line and material when he conceived the 1250 series executive collection, introduced in 1965. His idea for the chair was to use an aluminum “rim,” which outlined the chair as the main structural and design element. This rim would hold the parts together, without any further support; slots in the aluminum held the back shell and the upholstery in place, and the plastic back became rigid only after being fitted into the frame. The resulting design was an achievement in structure and aesthetics, and the chair remains a Knoll classic to this day.
