During Milan Design Week 2019, more specifically Salone del Mobile, Knoll celebrated an important anniversary: the Bauhaus centenary. With that, they brought in a couple of novelties for their brand, specifically some new collections alongside some of its most iconic products.
In this initiative, Knoll emphasised a clear set of values more specifically referring to timelessness, which has been a coherent design logic that has been the company’s trademark, skilfully combined with uniqueness and comfort.
The first one to be mentioned is the new collections presented by Knoll and designed by Piero Lissoni For this edition of the Salone, Lissoni created Gould, a new family of upholstered furniture inspired by the American Fifties as well as by the architecture of that period.
There’s also the fact that the KN Collection, also by Lissoni, has expanded in two directions. The first is the KN04 chair with four fixed legs and the second consists of the KN05, a two-seat settee with linear forms and a metal structure that brings lightness to this recognizable, original design.
Knoll also debuted its new Smalto collection of tables designed by Edward Barber
and Jay Osgerby. These furniture pieces feature a forceful graphic approach that can be perceived as a contemporary reinterpretation of classic design.
When it comes to their booth, as a form of keeping with the philosophy “Modern Always,” Knoll presented some modern classics by exceptional architects and designers like Florence Knoll, Mies van der Rohe, Eero Saarinen and Harry Bertoia. These modern takes on classics were in a display space honed down to the smallest details in impeccable style.
Founded in 1938 through the collaboration with the great masters of design and
the architecture of the 20th century, Knoll is a top brand that continues its path today with some of the best contemporary talents, constantly reminding customers of their ever-evolving creative vision that made them a worldwide famous brand.
