Massimo Vignelli

If you can design one thing, you can design everything, said Massimo Vignelli (b. 1931, Milan) who has worked in a number of areas ranging from package design to furniture design, to public signage, to showroom design through Vignelli Associates, which he co-founded with his wife, Lella. He studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and later at the UniversitÓ di Architettura, Venice. Vignelli went to New York in 1966 to start the New York branch of a new company, Unimark International, which quickly became one of the largest design firms in the world. They designed many recognizable corporate identities, including American Airlines and the New York City Subway. In 1971, Massimo resigned from Unimark, and soon after, he and Lella founded Vignelli Associates.
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.
