In 1925 Breuer created the prototype of the Wassily, a true deconstruction of a club chair in a linear structure, probably derived from that of bicycles, where the soft part for the seat is entrusted to taut straps of fabric or leather. Even today, the production of the Breuer collection is a skilful combination of advanced technology (working of the metal parts) and the hand of the craftsman (making the fabric and leather upholstery).

Work from Home
A space suitable for working from home has now become more important than ever. An environment studied in minute details and characterised by comfortable furnishing solutions can make the work place more relaxing and stimulating. A harmonious and balanced home office, where you can feel at ease, helps improve the quality of your work. Ergonomic chairs and desks ensure a unique comfort. The functional elements allow to create a tidy as well as dynamic environment.
From the late 1940s through the 1950s, Eero Saarinen designed many of the most recognizable Knoll pieces, including the Tulip Chairs and Pedestal Tables, the Womb Chair, and the 70 Series Seating Collection. His designs used modern materials in graceful ways, helping establish the identity of Knoll during our formative years.
Over the years, Lissoni’s sensitivity has made him a spokesperson for Knoll style and values. With the elegance and aesthetics that distinguish his work, he has most recently succeeded in discretely expressing his own brand of contemporaneity in the design of his KN Collection, a family of chairs, or Gould, a sofa with a modernist flair that recalls 1950s Americana and its architectures.
Originally introduced by Knoll in 1966, the Platner Collection is an icon of modern furniture. It captured the “decorative, gentle, graceful” shapes that were beginning to infiltrate the modern vocabulary.
