Florence Knoll

Our reproductions are inspired by Florence Knoll
 
Florence Knoll Bassett (born May 24, 1917) is an American architect and furniture designer who studied under the likes of Mies van der Rohe and Eero Saarinen. She was born in Saginaw, Michigan as "Florence Schust" and is known in familiar circles simply as "Shu". In 1943 she join with her husband Hans Knoll in redirecting Hans's furniture company more toward a modernist, Scandinavian style. After Hans's death, Florence took over as head of Knoll. In 1958 she married Harry Hood Bassett. Her American interpretation of minimalist, rationalist design theories is clearly evident in Knoll's storage pieces. She mixed woods and metals to great effect and added laminates as they became popular. Dressers and desks are all square in design but never lack for quality. Hanging cabinets have glass shelves, sliding doors and drop down fronts that can be used as bars. As an architect, Knoll's most famous creations are the Connecticut General Life Insurance building in Bloomfield, Connecticut and the interior of the CBS Building in New York City. In the 1950's Florence Knoll's work was often displayed at the Museum of Modern Art's "Good Design" exhibits. Although Knoll did a great deal of residential work, the International Style she worked in was specially in successful corporate offices

 George Nelson

Our reproductions are inspired by George Nelson
(1908-1986) Nelson was an important modernist whose work cut across the fields of interior, industrial and exhibition design. Nelson studied architecture at Yale University in the 1920s, and in the next two decades earned a strong reputation as a writer on design for Architectural Forum, Interiors and Fortune. He was one of the most powerful forces behind the development of this century's American design aesthetic. As a thinker, writer, organizer and designer, Nelson commandeered a string of influential positions and brought about a widespread and clear-sighted reevaluation of how furniture was marketed and how using space well and thoughtfully could ameliorate modern living. In the 1952 Herman Miller catalogue he wrote that the pieces exhibited should be, "a permanent collection...in the sense that it will not be scrapped for each market or for each new 'trend.'" As almost every contributing designer and design has become a popular icon for the look of that period and is still showing up on the interior landscape today, it becomes apparent that Nelson achieved his goal.

Poul Kjaerholm

Our reproductions are inspired by Poul Kjaerholm
 
Kjaerholm designed modern functionalist furniture that was praised for its understated elegance and clean lines. He studied at the School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen where he would later teach. He was formally trained as a cabinetmaker, although he maintained a close relationship with natural woods and traditional processes, his work was geared more towards mass production and the energy of the modern movement. Kjaerholm was awarded the Lunning Prize in 1958 and worked as an exhibition designer in Denmark and abroad. The Mobilia Press wrote of him, "when Poul Kjaerholm's furniture is evaluated today, it is not by virtue of its quantity, but of its supremacy.
