Probber invented modular furniture in the 1940s, and the concept of "nuclear" furniture which utilized a variety of seating, tables and accessories in nuclear clusters.
A multi-talented fellow, Probber once fancied a career as a pop singer and songwriter. Although he eventually became a maker and industrialist, with a factory and hundreds of employees, he always put art first. He even traded his beloved car for a Picasso.
Newly released Probber furniture by M2L is on display at the M2L showroom at 135 Madison Avenue. Call 212-832-8222 for more information.
