Hans and Florence Knoll founded their company in 1938 on the principles that modern design can transform society for the better through a coherent balance of art and industry, aesthetic and function.

Knoll established the classic of industrial design with the flowing lines of the Tulip Chair, created by family friend Eero Saarinen. Having worked and studied with Bauhaus, Florence Knoll attracted eminent Bauhaus leaders such as Ludwig van der Rohe to produce the iconic Barcelona Chair and Marcel Breuer’s tubular steel Wassily Chair.

Over 40 Knoll designs can be found in the permanent design collection of The Museum of Modern Art in New York City. In 2011, Knoll received the National Design Award for Corporate and Institutional Achievement from the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.

Today Knoll is an award-winning collaboration of people and products with a distinctly modern feel who have transformed the American workplace with sleek and efficient design.
