Questions about this item?

Shaver Howard
Arthur Umanoff

(October 3, 1923 - August 1985)

Born in New Jersey, he moved to New York in 1940.

Arthur H. Umunoff tried in his work to substantiate the thesis that the fundamentals of good design are in every way analogous to good homemaking. Accordingly, he works each item of furniture from the drawing board, through his own shop where he handled the raw materials directly, to actual use in his New York home with wife, Charlotte, and two young sons. As a partner in Post Modern, Ltd., which manufactured from his designs. Arthur had a hand in producing, merchandising, and selling, too.

Some of his most interesting pieces are those which combine wrought iron and wood or laminated plastic: well sized desk (36x24x45), in birch, walnut or Formica; combination lamp table and magazine rack in the same materials.

His most recognizable early work designs were for Shaver Howard.

Umanoff`s work for Elton continues with the introduction of chairs, serving carts and a complete line of case pieces which get Elton and Umanoff chosen for the 1953 Good Design Exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

The Umanoff designs for Elton (1953) were also featured for the 1954 Storage: Volume 4 of the Interiors Library series edited by George Nelson.
