    Making Connections: Harvey Probber Furniture Exhibition at NYSID

    In the middle decades of the twentieth century, Harvey Probber's name was as widely recognized as those of designers like Charles Eames and George Nelson, yet it is scarcely as familiar today. This may be in part because he was even better known as a prominent manufacturer, but there are other reasons: his furniture was made in relatively limited quantities, he was self-taught as a designer, and he was considerably younger than his contemporaries and competitors.
