Knoll International


Knoll International was founded in 1938 by Hans Knoll, before becoming Knoll Associates in cooperation with his wife, Florence Knoll. The history of the company began with the innovative designs of Bauhaus, and the current Knoll International extends from classics from the likes of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe through Ettore Sottsass to Alexander Girard. In addition to the diverse range of furniture, since 1947 Knoll International has devoted itself to the design of fabrics suitable, and intended for, both home and office. With such a long tradition Knoll Designs are characterized by their elegance, timelessness and clear form language.

smow blog Design Calendar: March 10th 1915 – Happy Birthday Harry Bertoia!

...A classical example of a prodigious artistic talent Harry Bertoia initially studied art in Detroit before in 1937 he was awarded the aforementioned scholarship for Cranbrook Academy of Art where he studied painting and drawing, and got to know the likes of Walter Gropius, Carl Milles, Charles Eames, Maija Grotell, Florence Knoll, Eero Saarinen, Ray Kaiser et al... After taking a series of jobs Harry Bertoia was approached in 1950 by Florence Knoll with an invitation to work with her and her husband Hans's fledgling furniture company, an offer Bertoia duly accepted and which resulted in 1952 in the release of the Diamond Chair collection - one of the best known examples of 1950s American furniture design, a product family which placed Harry Bertoia alongside Eames, Nelson, Saarinen et al at the forefront of mid-century American modernism, and a commercial success which gave Harry Bertoia the financial security to concentrate on his sculpture work: For much like his contemporary Isamu Noguchi, Harry Bertoia always understood himself primarily as a sculptor, and much like Noguchi saw his product design work as an exploration of the borders of his sculpting and an opportunity to test his art in other contexts...
