Charles Pollock (1930-2013) was an important American designer. During his studies at the Pratt Institute in New York he had the opportunity to meet the famous George Nelson, one of the noble fathers of American design, who was impressed by his qualities and was a sort of mentor for him. Pollock worked for many years in Nelson's studio, sharing with him several works for Herman Miller and specializing in the creation of furniture based on curved metal tubing, an elegant evolution of the principles of Modernism and Bauhaus. In the 1960s, after setting up his own business, it was the meeting with another great protagonist of American design that changed his career. Florence Knoll in fact decided to put some of her creations into production with her Knoll Inc., including the Pollock Executive Chair, which soon became one of the group's flagship products, a real must for executive offices in the 1960s. , still used in institutions such as the Smithsonian Institution of Washington and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. After moving to Europe in 1965, a long period of creative silence followed, interrupted only by a few rare collaborations such as the one with the Bolognese company Castelli and with the American Bernhardt Design.
