From 16 January to 22 January 2020 the historic Knoll showroom in Paris on Boulevard Saint-Germain updates its exhibits during Maison & Objet, the fair of design and interior decorating.
For the occasion and in keeping with its philosophy of “Modern Always,” Knoll presents its interpretation of classic and contemporary living in a setting where some of the latest new developments seen at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, like the Gould Sofa by Piero Lissoni, are accompanied by modern classics created by exceptional architects and designers such as Florence Knoll, Mies van der Rohe, Eero Saarinen and Marcel Breuer, in dialogue with more recent products in a showroom space featuring painstaking attention to detail.
The window display features the Gould Collection, with the sofa designed by Piero Lissoni inspired by America and its architecture of the 1950s. The piece now comes in a new version for combination with a chaise longue, a sophisticated pairing of white leather and fabric enhanced by original piping, a decorative touch that highlights the squared forms of the upholstered furnishings.
Alongside the sofa, some of the modern classics by Mies van der Rohe are on view in new finishes and coverings, such as the the iconic Barcelona® Daybed in refined Green leather and elegant tables, or the new Bauhaus Limited Edition version of the legendary Wassily™ Chair designed by Marcel Breuer, in a limited edition of just 500 certified and numbered pieces, to commemorate the centenary of the Bauhaus movement. These items are joined by the more recent Red Baron modular bookcase by Piero Lissoni, in the version with chestnut shelves, an ideal choice for any type of setting.
The refined color combinations of the fabrics and the particular workmanship of the finishing make Knoll products unique in their coherent design, suggesting novel perspectives to interpret new lifestyle functions, always in tune with the values of the brand.
