    The Planter Dining Table and Chair, designed in 1966, captures the decorative, gentle, graceful shapes that were beginning to infiltrate modern vocabulary. The pieces are created by welding hundreds of curved, nickel-plated steel rods to circular frames, simultaneously serving as structure and ornament.

    The Knoll Marcel Breuer Collection consists of the Wassily Chair, the Cesca Chair, the Laccio Side Table and Coffee Table.

     

    Like his Wassily and Cesca chairs, Marcel Breuer's Laccio Tables are critical to the story of 20th-century design. Breuer's use of tubular steel to define lines in space revolutionized furniture construction and inspired many subsequent generations of designers.

    The Florence Knoll Collection consists of her sofas, benches, coffee tables, table desks and her classic credenzas.

     

    Consistent with all of her designs, Florence Knoll's Bench has a spare, geometric profile that reflects the rational design approach Florence learned from her mentor, Mies van der Rohe. Have fun choosing fabrics or leathers for this useful bench.

    As head of the Knoll Planning Unit Florence Knoll saw it as her job to translate the vocabulary and rationale of the modern exterior to the interior space of the corporate office.
