Founded by Hans Knoll in New York in 1938, Knoll is recognised worldwide as a leader in the design of residential and office furnishings, thanks to products that are inspiring, evolving and timeless. Focusing on elegant avant-garde design, Knoll achieved fame and success in the 1950s by working with the most outstanding talents of the day, like Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Marcel Breuer, Eero Saarinen, Harry Bertoia and Florence Knoll, who influenced modern culture with their landmark products that transformed the ideals of the Bauhaus school into reality, based on the concept of consolidation of art, industry and crafts.

Always in the design avant-garde, over the years Knoll has been able to keep the special personality of its unique, timeless furnishings intact. Alongside the historic products, including over forty classics held in the permanent collections of the world’s most important museums, new designs have continuously been added, capable of combining innovation and technology, reflecting the brand’s ability to envision personalised solutions and to diversify offerings to suit different markets, both for living spaces and workspaces.
