florence knoll two-unit credenzas
Florence Knoll, 1961
Trained as an architect, Florence Knoll's own pieces for Knoll are simple, architectural designs that stand the test of time. Her lounge seating, sofas, tables, and storage adapt flawlessly to any environment, with their clean, linear design and incredibly durable, high-quality construction. These pieces are built to last a lifetime - or several lifetimes. Not flashy pieces at all, Knoll said that her own work "filled in the gaps" for star pieces by Bertoia and Saarinen, but today we know that they stand in a class all by themselves.
