About the Designer

Charles Pollock

American-born Charles Pollock studied industrial design at the Pratt Institute in New York, and started working with Herman Miller under the supervision of George Nelson just after the 2nd world war.

At Herman Miller he designed in cooperation with George Nelson the Swag Leg Collection, using bent metal tubes to create table and chair bases. George Nelson then applied the Eames’ techniques of molding plastics into a seating shape to create his line of Swag Leg Furniture.

It was in 1960 that Pollock decided on starting his own enterprise, resulting in several designs such as the Sting Chair and the well-known Pollock chair. Several of his designs were supported by the Knoll company who provided means to Pollock to further develop his work and techniques.

Later in his career (1980s), Charles Pollock moved to Europe where he cooperated with the Italian Castelli, resulting in the Penelope Chair, a stackable wire mesh chair with chrome tubing.
