Designed by the late Paul McCobb, a pioneer of contemporary democratic design, the Planner™ Shelving series combines his signature graphic aesthetic with elegant expression. Named after its ability to help shape the design of a room, the simple yet striking shelving is available in three versions, each in varying heights and configurations. The Planner MC500 has evenly spaced shelves and displays Paul McCobb’s signature approach to design with simple, repeated forms, and visual transparency.
Paul McCobb (1917-1969) was one of the leading contemporary furniture designers on the American design scene in the 1950s and 1960s. Over a timespan of twenty years he designed an impressive range of multi-functional furniture, accessories and textiles, as well as several notable interior design projects. McCobb often offered a playful take on traditional forms with hints of Scandinavian craftsmanship and international style clarity, often made with affordable and robust materials such as iron, solid wood and durable upholstery. Since McCobb’s early death in 1969 his designs have not been in production, but are now making their way back.
