Design by Charles Pollock, 1963.
By Knoll.

Helping to secure his prominence as a furniture designer in the 1960s, Charles Pollock's Executive Armchair has become a timeless icon of mid-century elegance and ergonomics. He arrived at the ingenious concept, enthusiastically supported by Florence Knoll, for the Executive Armchair when he challenged himself to create a chair inspired by a single line. The result was an extremely versatile chair with a recognizably unique aluminum rim outlining the chair to act as the central structure and as a bumper that doesn't rust, tarnish, fade and will guard the chair from damage.

Offered in a variety of fabrics and leather upholstery options, the thick tufted back and seat is extremely comfortable and applicable to a number of spaces and uses. Plus, the construction includes a 360 degree swivel tilt, and pneumatic seat height adjustment to make the chair uniquely yours.

Knoll was founded in 1938 by Hans and Florence Knoll who sought to create new types of furniture and environments for the home and workplace. Their approach was to join craftsmanship with technology through the use of design and to create beautiful home furnishings that stood the test of time visually, functionally and practically. The pair sought out designers willing to change the landscape of modern design. With pioneering modernists like Eero Saarinen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Harry Bertoia, and Richard Schultz they built a brand that today contains many of the hallmarks of modern design.

Knoll enjoys brand recognition throughout the world for its modern classics as well as groundbreaking new products formulated under new designer partnerships. Few companies can match the array of Knoll products, which combine a modernist aesthetic with residential appeal. This point of view nurtured by Florence Knoll, has become the trademark of Knoll design. The Knoll name offers a rich design history - a legacy of iconic designers and inventive new collaborations. Their focus on quality and responsible manufacturing means that each piece transcends multiple generations in both use and appeal.

Charles Pollock

(1930-2013) Born in Philadelphia, 1930. After a longstanding interest in furniture design, Pollock attended the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn to pursue his studies in modernist aesthetics and construction methods. Upon graduation,Pollock approached the celebrated designer Florence Knoll to inquire about employment and soon after, he began working on his iconic Pollock Chair (657 Lounge Chair) under her supervision. The chair, made of inviting leather and chrome, became an immediate success and a staple in the modern office. Pollock again demonstrated his command of line and material when he conceived the Executive Chair series, featuring the iconic aluminum rim alongside the periphery of the chair. The resulting design was an achievement in structure and aesthetics, and the chair remains a classic in the Knoll portfolio to this day.
