Designer: Paul McCobb (1917 – 1969) established his own interior design studio in New York City in 1945. In 1950, he presented his first collection of low-cost furniture, the Planner Group, with the distributor B.G Mosberg. Its more exclusive furniture lines, Directional, Predictor Linear and Perimeter, were produced by Winchendon Furniture in Massachusetts and marketed and distributed by McCobb himself. The American designer popularized modular furniture and created “living walls” with room dividers and mobile storage systems. His fame in the 1950s was considerable, but his name became little known from the 1960s onwards. Paul McCobb’s work has been featured in the “Good Design” exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Merchandise Mart in Chicago.
