Charles Pollock, was an essential, but almost secret, player in the Mid Century industrial design movement. In 1963, he introduced the Pollock Executive Chair through Knoll Studio. It remains an office fixture to this day, making high-profile appearances on Mad Men and in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. — Fast Company
Charles Pollock’s Executive Chair utilizesÂ what Pollock, himself,Â described as “rim technology”:Â— the use of a single polished aluminum band around the chair’Â’s perimeter to hold the design together, structurally and visually.
