Russell Spanner (1916–1974) was a Canadian designer and major contributor to residential furniture designs in the 1950s. Spanner was also an amateur wrestling champion,  and was known to test the strength of his designs by jumping on them and throwing them across the factory floor. (excerpt from wikipedia).
