Florence Knoll discussing finishes with Eero Saarinen for his iconic Tulip Chair

Beginning her studies at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, Florence Knoll went on to study under the tutelage of some of the greatest architects of the 20th century, including Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer. Honoured with countless awards and accolades, such as the National Medal of Arts, awarded by the US president, the American Institute of Architects’ Industrial Design Gold Medal and the Red Dot Design Award, Knoll’s work is renowned across the world.

Helping to shape the landscape of 20th century design through her position at Knoll Furniture Company, Florence Knoll showcased the work of designers such as Harry Bertoia, Mies van der Rohe and lifelong friend Eero Saarinen. Creating spaces rather than decorating them, Knoll’s furniture designs feature a striking command of the modern aesthetic that remain relevant today. Following the death of her husband Hans Knoll in 1955, Florence Knoll assumed control of the company before resigning in 1960 to focus on developing and directing design.
