Pair of nearly pristine lounge chairs designed by famed designer Charles Pollock for Knoll, circa 1960s. Pair of steel and leather ‘sling chairs’ or '657', as the design was commonly referred to, 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. Although reproductions are produced today, there is no denying the elegance of these original pieces by Pollock. Black leather cushions are attached to the seat via velcro for ease of removal, as shown in the images.
There is little fading and minor abrasions consistent with age and use. Otherwise the chairs are in excellent condition. The chairs measure 28 inches high x 25 inches wide x 25 inches in depth. The seat measures 18 inches to the curve in the sling back.
