Paul McCobb

Emmanuelle Vidal finds for you the most beautiful pieces of the second half of the XXth century.

Paul McCobb (1917 - 1969) was an American decorator and designer known in the 1950s for his simple, elegant, functional and affordable furniture. Trained at the Vesper George School of Art in Boston, he moved to New York where he became a design consultant for Martin Feinman's Modernage Furniture. There he met BG Mesberg, with whom he formed a partnership in 1950 to create the Planner Group. Together they launched several furniture lines aimed at the post-war middle class that proved to be very popular. The company also ventured into the design of other products such as wallpaper and lighting. An eclectic jack-of-all-trades, Paul McCobb also designed televisions, radios and hi-fi consoles. Rewarded for his creations, the designer received the Good Design Award from MoMa five times between 1950 and 1955.
