Design by Florence Knoll, 1954.
By Knoll.

Florence Knoll believed that the quintessential desk facilitated communication. To this end, she labored over the relationship between this table top and its legs to achieve a partners' desk typology for effective collaboration. The result was an impressive yet functional 72" wide rectangular desk with two pencil drawers that provide adequate storage for personal devices and accessories.

Precise and ingenious construction of the Florence Knoll Executive Desk includes a frame and legs made of heavy gauge welded steel. The post and four-star legs are finished in polished chrome (or optional satin chrome). Constructed of solid plywood and finished with a veneer face, the table top is available in five finishes.

To celebrate the reintroduction of this modern classic, an expanded line of materials for base and top finishes is being offered. Its rectilinear veneer top is offered in five finishes: mahogany, oak, rosewood, teak and walnut. Select either a polished or satin chrome post and legs. Includes adjustable steel glides with a chrome finish.

Knoll

Knoll was founded in 1938 by Hans and Florence Knoll who sought to create new types of furniture and environments for the home and workplace. Their approach was to join craftsmanship with technology through the use of design and to create beautiful home furnishings that stood the test of time visually, functionally and practically. The pair sought out designers willing to change the landscape of modern design. With pioneering modernists like Eero Saarinen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Harry Bertoia, and Richard Schultz they built a brand that today contains many of the hallmarks of modern design.

Knoll enjoys brand recognition throughout the world for its modern classics as well as groundbreaking new products formulated under new designer partnerships. Few companies can match the array of Knoll products, which combine a modernist aesthetic with residential appeal. This point of view nurtured by Florence Knoll, has become the trademark of Knoll design. The Knoll name offers a rich design history - a legacy of iconic designers and inventive new collaborations. Their focus on quality and responsible manufacturing means that each piece transcends multiple generations in both use and appeal.

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" and her application of design principles were radical departures from the standard of the time, 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.
