charted the rise of modern American design by producing pieces with lasting appeal and structured simplicity.

Founded in New York City in 1938 by European migrants Hans Knoll and Jens Risom, the company sought to bring European Modernism to the United States with its selection of modern office and home furniture.

The company became firmly established when Hans met his wife and working partner Florence. Well travelled, well educated and connected to Marcel Breuer, Mies Van Der Rohe, Eero Saarinen and many more. Florence Knoll brought an exacting eye and creative vision to the company. In addition to commisioning designs for the furniture collection, she also established the Knoll Planning Unit, an interiors consultancy that influenced the way in which interiors divisions of architectural practices operate today.

The Knoll collection reads like a who's who of twentieth-century design history. The Saarinen Table, Florence Knoll Sofa, Tulip Chair, Barcelona chair and Bertoia Chair are just a few of pieces the company have produced that are cemented in the design canon.
