Pollock Arm Chair by Knoll
designed by Charles Pollock

A benchmark of mid-century design, we are proud to offer the Pollock 657 Arm Chair by Knoll. Designed in 1960 and originally manufactured from 1964-79, the steel and leather ‘sling chair’ or '657', as it is commonly called, offers a refined combination of materials and finishes. Tubular steel legs connect to cast-aluminum arms and stretchers with exposed hardware, exemplifying Pollock’s simple design approach. The chair was reintroduced 2014.

It has been more than half a century since the late Charles Pollock designed what was then called the Model 657, a minimal chair of polished chrome steel tubing and natural cowhide. The 657 blended comfort, functionality and, of course, style; Florence Knoll, seeing the design for the first time, declared it “gold.” Known today simply as the Pollock Arm Chair, it initiated Pollock’s design relationship with Knoll; the designer went on to create the best-selling Pollock Executive Chair, which has remained in production since 1965. In fact, the Executive Chair has been so popular that it has in many ways overshadowed Pollock's first Knoll chair, despite its beautiful linearity and simple responsiveness to the sitter’s position.

About the Designer


Charles Pollock

When it came to chairs, Pollock said the sitter should drive the design; form followed function. For him, timeless beauty comes about through an understanding of the total user experience. “The whole thing boils down to one question: what is the human need?” he said. “If there’s anything anyone wants to know about Charles Pollock and his theory, it’s the adaptor to all the human beings.”
