Charles Pfister's perfectly proportioned lounge seating collection consists of flexible freestanding components that enhance any residential or commercial interior. The clean-lined design offers both long-term flexibility and an enduring, highly versatile aesthetic. The timeless proportions and superb craftsmanship of the designs reflect Pfister's hallmark: "There is a movement away from throw-away society, away from disposable possessions. Instead there is a mounting interest in useful, sculptural, wonderfully constructed objects... Such objects are a triumph in any setting."

Charles Pfister was an associate partner and director of the interior design department at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. He established his firm in 1981 with offices in San Francisco and London. Much-admired for the elegance of his interiors and furniture designs, Pfister studied architecture and design at the University of California, Berkeley.

Collection includes a lounge chair, settee, ottoman, sofa as well as sectional configurations. Ideal for all residential and office applications.

Hans Knoll, the son of a pioneer German furniture manufacturer, founded the Knoll company in New York City in 1938, one year after immigrating from Germany. He hired Florence Schust, a Cranbrook graduate who had worked for Gropius and Breuer, and the two were married in 1946. The next year, they opened a textiles division and showroom that was flanked with some of the worlds leading designers. Knoll would triumph thanks to impressive international contacts, gaining exclusive rights to the works of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and producing them to their original specifications. This included the 1929 Barcelona Chair. They also commissioned Eero Saarinen to design the now iconic Tulip chair, and hold the rights to Marcel Breuerĺs seminal Wassily Chair. Artists such as Harry Bertoia, Jens Risom, and Isamu Noguchi would also collaborate with Knoll.
