Iconic designer and co-founder of Knoll
as it is known today, Florence Knoll surrounded herself with some of the most significant designers and architects of the 20th century. Brought into the Saarinen family, Knoll was able to explore design at Cranbrook Academy under such incredible figures as Marcel Breuer
and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Knoll's architectural background comes across in her structural yet beautiful pieces, which she desired to serve the space they are brought into, rather than be viewed on their own. Her collection remains in production to this day with the company she helped create.
