    http://hivemodern.com/pages/product6560/bernhardt-charles-pollock-cp1-lounge-chair Design Charles Pollock, 2012 Steel frame, upholstery Made in USA by Bernhardt In 2012, the 82-year-old Charles Pollock introduced his first new product in America since the debut of his iconic Pollock Chair forty-seven years earlier. Likened by the iconic designer to a classic Jaguar sports car, the CP Lounge chair blends a sleek, aerodynamic stainless steel frame with a luxurious natural leather seat and exquisite craftsmanship to create a truly timeless functional piece of art. The CP lounge is available with either a classic hand-quilted seat reminiscent of vintage car upholstery, or with a streamlined contemporary seat with distinctive stitched-line detailing. Pollock's designs were governed by two principles. Creatively, he favored a continuous curved line when sketching ideas and creating forms. The second principle was that any product must be visually attractive, functional, and affordable. His designs were technically advanced, yet easy to manufacture at a reasonable price. Pollock is the recipient of numerous awards and his work is exhibited in many museums around the world. CP1 lounge chair features a polished stainless steel frame and a hand-quilted seat and back with a looped stitched cording tracing the perimeter of the chair. It is available in your choice of a variety of upholstery options.

      This is a video project I put together for Bernhardt Design for the release of a furniture line which they aired at ICFF in New York City in May 2012. The chair and it’s exhibition took top prize at the convention. It is about Charles Pollock one of the last of the midcentury furniture designers. He is a very interesting designer and at age 82 he still designs chairs. I wish we could've done a more in-depth video on this man. He has more anecdotes and talked about his struggles with his bi-polar condition through out his whole life. Every chair he made was a game changer in the furniture industry.. and mind you he has only made a handful. He comes from a period when the designer would also build the chairs. I hope others are entertained by this video.
