The collaboration between Piero Lissoni and Knoll continues with the KN Collection, presented in new and different interpretations which represent the evolution of a program that began in 2018.The KN04 chair, with more compact proportions, is ideal for completing domestic corners where relaxation is a style and perfectly coordinated with all the collections in the Knoll catalogue, where the elegant, sophisticated touch of Piero Lissoni generates an aesthetic of lightness that sets the tone of the entire KN family. Rigor and purity, contemporary and functional design. A perfect combination that gives rise to a new aesthetic of living, capable of harmoniously tuning domestic environments and collective facilities, from waiting rooms to hotel lobbies. These contexts become the expression of personal identity, thanks to the expansion of the traditional codes of the home that open to incorporate multiple hybrids and infinite compositional possibilities.
