Florence Knoll Sofas
Florence Knoll Bassett is an American and was born in 1917 and like many of her peers, studied architecture and industrial design before turning her hand to designing great furniture pieces. Florence Knoll had the benefit of studying under the great Mies Van Der Rohe and also Eliel Saarinen, the father of the more widely known Eero Saarinen. The distinctive features of Florence Knoll's furniture designs were the sleek silhouettes and geometries. This reflected her architectural training and interests. Her furniture was designed with the notion of transforming architecture into furniture, which she achieved by translating the structure and language of the modern building into a human-scaled object. It is Florence Knoll's self named sofa range that we focus on here at Designer Furniture and our superb modern reproduction versions use the original design specifications in every way and use modern manufacturing techniques to ensure a high quality product.
