Florence Knoll believed that the quintessential desk facilitated communication. She labored over the relationship between this table top and its legs to achieve a partners' desk typology for effective collaboration.

Today, the rectilinear veneer top is available in various finish options: mahogany, oak, rosewood and walnut. The top features two pencil drawers that provide adequate storage for personal devices and accessories; each drawer contains a solid lumber pencil tray. The steel base is available in either polished or satin chrome.

While a student on the campus of the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Florence Knoll Bassett became a protegée of Eero Saarinen. She worked briefly for Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and Wallace K. Harrison. In 1946, she married Hans Knoll, after which they formed Knoll Associates. As a pioneer of the Knoll Planning Unit, she revolutionized interior space planning with her belief in "total design" - embracing all aspects of design principles which were radical departures from the standard practice in the 1950s, but were quickly adopted and remain widely used today. For her extraordinary contributions to architecture and design, Florence Knoll was accorded the National Endowment for the Arts' prestigious 2002 National Medal of Arts.
