florence knoll relaxed medium square bench

Used as a bench, ottoman or coffee table, new Relaxed Benches bring a softer sit and new sizes to the Florence Knoll Collection. The original design has been updated with a lower horizon to complement today's more casual lifestyle. Consistent with all of her designs, each piece has a spare, geometric profile that reflects the objective perfectionism and rational approach Florence Knoll learned from her mentor, Mies van der Rohe.

While a student on the campus of the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Florence Knoll Bassett became a protégé 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.
