Sleek piece: Knoll re-issues Pollock arm chair

Knoll re-issued the Pollock Arm Chair. Also known as the “657 Sling-back Lounge,” the piece—designed by the late Charles Pollock approximately 50 years ago—ceased production in 1979.

Pollock conceived the piece as an example of function on display, with every visible element—from the chrome steel tubing to the aluminum arms, and to the natural cowhide seat—serving a dual purpose of providing structure, as well as aesthetic appeal. As such, the unit blurs the line between structure and adornment.

With the re-issue, users may specify the sling-back style in Spinneyback Belting Leather or a urethane cushion in Portofino Leather. Seat colors include black, chocolate or cinnamon.
