Paul McCobb (1917-1969) was one of the leading contemporary furniture designers in the 1950s and 1960s in the American design scene.
For over twenty years he designed a notable range of multi-functional furniture, accessories and textiles, as well as several impressive interior design projects. McCobb often would incorporate a hint of Scandinavian craftsmanship, play on traditional forms and a global style to his work - using affordable and strong materials such as iron, solid wood and durable upholstery.
Being a prominent figure in American mid-century design, Paul McCobb developed the Planner series in the 1950s, a modular furniture series that brought modern design into middle-class American households. The aesthetic attribute of McCobb’s design is sleek and minimalistic and at the same time approachable. With its versatility, the Planner series became one of the most successful commercial furniture lines of its era.
The Cache Console is part of the re-production of his designs by Karakter.
