Design by Florence Knoll, 1961.
From Florence Knoll's 1961 Executive Collection of modern classics. Often imitated but never duplicated, the Knoll Square Coffee Table is cool and precise. Sharp metal angles meet to frame a table top in glass, natural marble, polished or satin (matte) coated marble, granite, finished wood or veneer. Offered with a Polished or Satin Chrome base and a range of table tops in glass, marble and veneer. Note that marble tops are offered in two finishes: standard Polished or Satin. The satin finished marble creates a matte sheen that gives the top a natural honed appearance while offering the same protective qualities as the Polished polyester coated marble finish.
ExtraWhite Marble is currently on product hold/unavailable. The Florence Knoll Coffee Table in all finishes is Greenguard certified. The KnollStudio logo and signature of Florence Knoll are stamped into the base.
Material(s): Polished chrome-plated or satin chrome-plated steel with marble, glass, finished wood, granite or veneer
Dimensions: 23.5"W X 23.5"D X 17"H
Designer: Florence Knoll
While a student at the Kingswood School on the campus of the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, Florence Knoll Bassett (née Schust) became a protegée of Eero Saarinen. She studied architecture at Cranbrook, the Architectural Association in London and the Armour Institute (Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago). She worked briefly for Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and Wallace K. Harrison. In 1946, she became a full business and design partner and married Hans Knoll, after which they formed Knoll Associates. She was at once a champion of world-class architects and designers and an exceptional architect in her own right. As a pioneer of the Knoll Planning Unit, she revolutionized interior space planning. Her belief in "total design" — embracing architecture, manufacturing, interior design, textiles, graphics, advertising and presentation — and her application of design principles in solving space problems were radical departures from the standard practice in the 1950s, but were quickly adopted and remain widely used today. For her extraordinary contributions to architecture and design, Florence Knoll was accorded the National Endowment for the Arts' prestigious 2002 National Medal of Arts.View other products by Florence Knoll
