Exemplified by his conceptual designs, Charles Pollock has a strong internal and emotional connection to seating.
Pollock was born in Philadelphia in 1930. He studied at the Cass Technical College in Detroit before winning a stipend to attend Pratt Institute of Design, which helped him secure a place working with George Nelson after college. Later, Florence Knoll's recognition of his talent helped secure his reputation as one of the world's preeminent furniture designers. His Pollock-Chair is the best-selling executive chair in the history of office furniture design, and now has a place in the Louvre in Paris. Pratt Institute's 1991 tribute honored Pollock with its Excellence by Design Award.
