Harvey Probber was a prolific and largely self-taught designer, maker, and artist that launched Americans to sectional, modular seating in the 1940’s. During a career that spanned effectively in excess of 4 decades, Probber made substantive contributions to the development of new varieties and technologies in the furniture sector. He offered his initial style to the Superior Upholstery Business when he was just 16 and seven years later established his personal firm, Harvey Probber, Inc. Prior to his 30th birthday, his sling chair and nuclear seating had been featured in a “Good Design” exhibition at the MoMA.

Probber was admired for his sleek types, finely crafted specifics and luxurious finishes. Even though mostly recognized as a designer of sophisticated, residential furniture, his organization ultimately created the transition to office furnishings, applying the concept of modularity to the booming contract market. Considering that selling his company in 1986, Probber’s styles have turn into extremely prized collector’s objects on auction internet sites and vintage outlets close to the globe. By means of M2L, Probber’s iconic furnishings patterns will after once again turn out to be available to the North American marketplace.
