Piero Lissoni

Piero Lissoni (b. 1956) of Seregno, Italy originally studied architecture in Milan, but first worked as a designer for Molteni and Lema, and later as art director and designer for a well-known food manufacturer. In 1986 he founded his own studio with Nico Canesi that still employs many architects, designers and product designers. The company’s second office, called "Graph.x" opened in 1996. Lissoni is well known for designing the internal architecture of hotels, such as the Monaco & Grand Canal in Venice , and the Bentley design hotel in Istanbul. As a graphic designer, Lissoni designed the corporate identity of the fashion designer Elie Taharie. As a product designer, his leg chair "S44" is very well known.
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.
