History:

Van Koert started out as a jewelry designer for Harry Winston after WWII and later branched into industrial design. He also is well known for designing silver for Towle, particularly the Contour design, his particular attention to the drawer pulls and other hardware on his furniture pieces.  The Counterpoint collection for Drexel precedes his Profile collection for the firm, and was only in production from 1956 to 1958.
