Hendrik Van Keppel and Taylor Green were both born in California in 1914. In the 1930's, while living in San Francisco, Van Keppel created a prototype of his indoor/outdoor furniture made of scrap iron wrapped with marine cord. In 1937 he moved to Los Angeles where he met Taylor Green and the VKG partnership was formed. Most of their clients were architects and designers associated with the Case Study House program. VKG promoted simple, pure, functional design that provided, for the very first time, a consistent design theme that was carried out both indoors and outdoors.View other products by Van Keppel-Green
