Design Florence Knoll, 1954
Coated marble or plate glass, solid steel
Made by Knoll

In celebration of 100 years of Florence Knoll and in honor of her legacy, Knoll has launched a new set of designs inspired by archival products. Influenced by her groundbreaking collection of occasional tables and executive desks which became the gold standard for the industry, KnollStudio has introduced the Florence Knoll Mini Desk.

Florence Knoll's designs are reserved and cool, severe and angular, reflecting the objective perfectionism of the early 1960s. Based on dimensions from the archive, the dining tables can also be used as meeting tables.

The Florence Knoll mini desk features either a polished plate glass top or marble tops. The marble tops have a transparent polyester coating in polished or satin finish to help eliminate use-associated stains. Please note: Marbles with a coating will yellow over time giving the marble a warmer tone. The legs are solid steel bars connected to horizontal steel tube rails using steel connectors in polished chrome finish. The KnollStudio logo and Florence Knoll's signature are stamped into the base of the table.

mini desk: 48" w | 26" d | 28.4" h

$2,479.00 + plus shipping
(please allow 8-12 weeks for this special table to be created and shipped to your location)

Florence Knoll

Florence Knoll Bassett (b. 1917) is an American architect and furniture designer who studied under Mies van der Rohe and Eliel Saarinen. She was born in Saginaw, Michigan as Florence Schust. She graduated from the Kingswood School before studying at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. She also received a bachelor's degree in architecture from Armour Institute (now Illinois Institute of Technology) in 1941 and briefly worked with leaders of the Bauhaus movement, including Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, and Wallace K. Harrison. While a student on the campus of the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Florence Knoll Bassett became a protegée of Eero Saarinen. In 1946, she married Hans Knoll, and they formed Knoll Associates. When Hans Knoll died in a car accident in 1955, Florence Knoll took over operation of the company. As a pioneer of the Knoll Planning Unit, she revolutionized interior space planning with her belief in "total design.” For her contributions to architecture and design, Florence Knoll was accorded the National Endowment for the Arts' prestigious 2002 National Medal of Arts.
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 Breuer's seminal Wassily Chair. Artists such as Harry Bertoia, Jens Risom, and Isamu Noguchi would also collaborate with Knoll.
