Knoll International was founded in New York in 1938 and ever since it has stood for excellent, innovative design with functional furniture featuring clean lines and the highest quality of materials and workmanship.
The company is regarded as one of the leading producers of furnishings for the office and the home on a global level. Together with his later wife, Florence Knoll, the company’s founder Hans Knoll consistently shaped 20th century design. In close collaboration with architects and designers, the couple wrote design history and their work is still setting standards: Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Harry Bertoia, Eero Saarinen, Franco Albini, Isamu Noguchi, George Nakashima, Frank Gehry, Richard Schultz, Warren Platner, Charles Pollock and Richard Sapper are among those who have helped make the company so famous and win many awards. Today, contemporary design greats like David Adjaye, Piero Lissoni and Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby carry on this tradition. Furniture from Knoll can be found in many of the world’s museums and collections. Thirty different designs are featured in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York alone.
Knoll has locations worldwide. In Europe, it is represented by showrooms and retailers in all major cities and operates production sites in Foligno and Graffignana, Italy.
