Discover the story behind one of the world’s most iconic design brands, Knoll — and don’t miss this exclusive offer to add a piece to your collection

The epitome of revolutionary design, furnishings brand Knoll is renowned for its unprecedented, outside-the-box aesthetic that changes the way we think about furniture. A brand that continuously carves its own place in design history, its Knoll that can be trusted to deliver a stream of expertly crafted pieces that challenge the status quo.

It was a simple vision that inspired German-born designer Hans Knoll to move to New York City in 1938 and create his own furnishings brand: to create great designs that would enrich and improve people’s lives both at home and at work. A simple idea, but one which was executed superbly and in a way that no-one had quite managed before, it wasn’t long before the forward-thinking creative began making waves in the design sphere. In 1943, Knoll was joined by his wife, Florence, who crafted the now renowned Planning Unit, an interior plan that paved the way for offices for years to come. Not only the first office creation of its kind, but the first to be run by a woman, this was a profound moment that cemented the brand’s status as a revolutionary design force to be reckoned with, something which still rings true today.
