Charles Pollock was an American industrial designer who was best known for his iconic Pollock Executive Chair. He was born in Detroit in 1930 and studied industrial design at the Pratt Institute in New York. Pollock’s design approach was characterized by a focus on simplicity, functionality, and ergonomics. His most famous work, the Pollock Executive Chair, was designed in 1963 and quickly became an icon of modernist design.

The chair was praised for its elegant simplicity and ergonomic design, and it was quickly adopted by offices and homes around the world. Pollock continued to design furniture and other products throughout his career, but the Pollock Executive Chair remains his most enduring legacy. His work has had a lasting impact on the fields of industrial design and furniture design, and his legacy continues to inspire designers and architects around the world.
