Founded in New York in 1938 by Hans and Florence Knoll, Knoll is recognized worldwide as a leader in the design of residential and office furnishings, thanks to products that are inspiring, evolving and timeless.
Focusing on elegant avant-garde design, Knoll achieved fame and success in the 1950s by working with the most outstanding talents of the day, like Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Marcel Breuer, Eero Saarinen, Harry Bertoia and Florence Knoll, who influenced modern culture with their“landmark” products that transformed the ideals of the Bauhaus school into reality, based on the concept of consolidation of “art,industry and crafts.”
Since then, world-renowned architects and designers have continued to gravitate around to Knoll, inspired by the firm’s ongoing excellence. The permanent collection of Knoll includes furnishings designed by Franco Albini, Achille Castiglioni, Frank Gehry, WarrenPlatner, Charles Pollock, Jens Risom, all the way to more recent contributions of Piero Lissoni, David Adjaye and Barber & Osgerby.
