Knoll introduces new products inspired by Florence Knoll in honor of her 100th year

February 20, 2017

In honor of what would have been Florence Knoll Bassett’s 100th year, the international furniture company Knoll is introducing a new line of products for home inspired by her iconic 1954 Lounge Collection. Knoll Bassett pioneered the “total design” concept, integrating architecture and design in a holistic process. The new Knoll products are billed as “a deeper, homier version of the classic” and include a sofa, settee, lounge chair, dining tables, and a mini desk. See a preview of the collection and a short video about the designer here.
