Knoll is Modern Always because modern always works. Founded in 1938 by Hans and Florence Knoll, today Knoll is recognized internationally for creating workplace and residential furnishings that inspire, evolve, and endure. Knoll's portfolio of designs feature works from pioneering modernists like Eero Saarinen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Harry Bertoia, and Richard Schultz. Along with their classic designs Knoll strives to work with the best designers of today including Antenna Design, Formway Design, Don Chadwick, David Adjaye, and Rem Koolhaas.
With an incredible roster of products like the Womb Chair and Barcelona Chair, Knoll continues to remain true to the Bauhaus design philosophy it was founded on, that modern furniture should complement architectural space, not compete with it. Whether you're searching for one of their iconic modern designs or looking to update your workspace, Knoll has an array of products, which combine a Modernist aesthetic with residential appeal.
New Zealand-based Formway Design has been designing furniture for more than five decades, beginning in 1956. In 1979, the company went through a transformation, developing a new identity and philosophy focusing on team-based design and research. Formway takes key insights regarding human behavior and translates them into products. Their user-centered culture marries a rigorous design process, a sensitivity to aesthetics, and a passion for the environment.
Formway's strategy for innovation was evident in the design of the highly successful Life® chair, introduced in 2002, which is celebrated for its sophisticated design, intuitive adjustments, responsive ergonomics and sustainable attributes. Building on these features, Generation by Knoll is Formway's latest design breakthrough, using new materials and elastic design to support the physical and cognitive activities of the modern office worker.View other products by Formway Design
