Modern always. Explore more than 80 years of iconic Knoll design, from pioneering modernist vision to bold contemporary designs for home and office.

Since 1938, Knoll has dedicated itself to the Bauhaus philosophy of "total architecture," creating furniture that seamlessly integrates with architectural spaces to form a harmonious design. From its humble beginnings as a small firm, Knoll has grown into a global brand, thanks to the vision of its founders, Florence and Hans Knoll.

The story of Knoll began with the meeting of Florence Schust, an emerging architect, and Hans Knoll, a German businessman who had recently started a furniture company. Their combined talents—Florence’s exceptional design skills and Hans’s keen business acumen—led to the creation of a groundbreaking enterprise.

Knoll's success is built on a rich history of creative collaboration with some of the most renowned architects and designers. Florence leveraged her connections from Cranbrook, bringing on board notable figures such as Eero Saarinen and Harry Bertoia. It was through her relationships with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer that Knoll secured the rights to produce their iconic furniture designs, establishing a legacy of innovation and quality.
Over the years, Knoll has continued to attract top talent, including recent additions like Piero Lissoni, Antonio Citterio, and Marc Newson. These collaborations ensure that Knoll remains at the forefront of contemporary design. The company is committed to evolving with the times while staying true to its foundational principles, constantly seeking new partnerships with today's leading designers to expand its impressive portfolio.

Knoll’s journey from a small start-up to an internationally recognised brand is a testament to its unwavering dedication to quality, innovation, and collaboration. By consistently blending architectural vision with design excellence, Knoll continues to shape the future of furniture design, making spaces around the world more functional and beautiful.
