Executive Chair by Charles Pollock for Knoll

Pollock's Executive Chair, which he designed for Knoll in 1963, has become an iconic symbol of mid-20th century workplaces. The swivel chair, set on a five-star base with rolling wheels, features buttoned upholstery and "rim technology" - the use of a single aluminium band around the edge of the seat.
Fifty years after its original design, Pollock's chair is still in production and has been exhibited around the world, including at Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Louvre in Paris.
