Florence Knoll + The Planning Unit

Florence Knoll + The Planning Unit

Florence Knoll Bassett established herself as one of the most influential American interior planners and designers of the second half of the twentieth century.

Her belief in “total design”—architecture, manufacturing, interior design, furniture, textiles, graphics, advertising and presentation—meant that she integrated all aspects of spatial planning, furnishing, and decorating into one seamless package.

Her application of design principles in solving space-planning problems were radical departures from the standard practice in the 1950s, but were quickly adopted and remain widely used today

Florence Knoll changed the world’s conception of how to decorate an office space with her innovative, art-centered and Bauhaus-inspired notions about functional design
