Pearson Executive Chair in Snow Performance Bouclé by Max Pearson for Knoll

$ 1,950
  • Description
    If a single company could be deemed the leading cultivator of iconic designers and incubator of timeless design, it would with little doubt be Knoll. Under Florence Knoll’s lead, she of course having been trained by the great Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, her namesake company became a stable of the best designers of her time. Eero Saarinen, Harry Bertoia, Warren Platner; each Knoll designer would inspire the next generation, and after years of this organic progression we are left with countless rich designs. A handful of notable Knoll designs have since been discontinued, they remain encapsulated in their time and have not seen modern day reproduction. Such is true with Max Pearson’s 1966 Seating Collection from which we have this Pearson Executive Chair.

    The Pearson Executive Chair draws inspiration from the Executive Chairs of both Eero Saarinen as well as Charles Pollock. As it is no longer in production, it’s not nearly as ubiquitous as the chairs of his predecessors. We find Pearson’s design to be the epitome of organic form and somewhat of a “hidden gem” - lovers of design from this era would consider Pearson’s chair a unique and offbeat addition to their collections, the piece that no one else has.

    The Object Refinery team has spent hours of time examining this chair by bringing it down to its frame. We are now capable of restoring these chairs and offering them in near-new condition using a plush Performance Bouclé in two colors; Snow & Platinum. The Bouclé makes this chair suitable for the home environment in an era where the home office is just as important as the Mid-Century’s classic office environment. Pearson’s Executive Chair is equipped with tilt, swivel, and manual height adjustment. We have a large quantity of these available and can accommodate orders of sets. Custom colors are possible with orders of quantity, please inquire for more information and swatches.
