Allan Gould was born and raised in New York City. He started off as a teacher and painter before his creative interest expanded to include furniture design. Through Gould's relationship with Gilbert Rohde established at the Design Laboratory, Gould was asked to design for Herman Miller where he created the “Compass Chair” in 1941. He was a lead designer in the firm and was in competition with George Nelson to take over Rohde’s position upon his retirement. Having experienced notable success as a furniture designer, in the 1950s Allan Gould established his own company, Allan Gould Designs, Inc, based in New York.
