Founded by Hans Knoll in 1938, the prestigious manufacturer was run by Knoll alongside his wife Florence after their marriage in 1946. After her husband’s death in 1955, Florence Knoll continued to lead Knoll Furniture Company to great successes. A former student of the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Florence Knoll orchestrated collaborations and partnerships with iconic designers and artists such as Anni Albers, Harry Bertoia and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, helping to shape the landscape of 20th-century design.
Today, Knoll continues to be one of the design industry’s most revered companies. Constantly striving to explore the latest technology and innovation, Knoll remains firmly on the forefront of contemporary design. Boasting a portfolio that includes Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Chair, the Warren Platner Lounge Chair and Eero Saarinen’s Tulip Tables, Knoll’s creations can be found in the permanent collections at New York’s MoMA, the Art Institute of Chicago and London’s V&A Museum.
Bauhaus Edition MR Adjustable Chaise Longue Velour Suede
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s MR Adjustable Chaise Longue has received an update in celebration of the centenary of the Bauhaus. Originally designed in 1929, Knoll has re-released the iconic design in a chrome and Velour suede finish.
One of Mies van der Rohe’s earliest steel designs, the chaise longue boasts a strikingly contemporary silhouette that is widely considered to be a modern interpretation of traditional rocking chairs.
The MR Adjustable Chaise Longue’s immediately identifiable silhouette is achieved through a curved frame crafted using polished-chrome tubular steel. Available upholstered in luxurious Velour suede in a range of warm hues, the chair is padded using removable foam cushions and finished with leather-covered structural straps in either black, white beige or dark brown to match your upholstery choice.
