Knoll continues to uphold its unsurpassed tradition of making the world’s most distinctive, enduring chair designs by releasing at the Salone Milan 210, the Avio sofa system by Piero Lissoni, and the Krusin Collection 016 by Marc Krusin
Knoll once again called upon OMA ( the architecture studio co-founded by Rem Koolhaas ) to design the ” This is Knoll ” 2016 exhibition space
OMA designed the Knoll display as a hyper-modern interpretation of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s modernist masterwork, the Barcelona Pavilion, using marble walls and glass panels – with a focus on chromatic effects, stylistic twists and timeless furnishings,
In keeping with the motto “Modern Always,” Knoll presents new designs alongside its modern classics designed by architects like Florence Knoll, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Eero Saarinen and Harry Bertoia, reflecting the determination to always offer innovative ideas, regardless of passing fashions – ideas that last in time.

This is Knoll – a brand with Modernity in its DNA
The Knoll adventure started 75 years ago, with the vision and the charisma of a young German who moved to the United States and the extraordinary design sensibility of a young architect who was to become his wife.
With all the excitement for Knoll happening at both their significant return to the Salone Fairgrounds, combined with the presence of Rem Koolhaas to launch the “Knoll Tools for Life” collection at the Prada Space – it was little wonder that this year, Knoll’s permanent Mlan showroom at Piazza Bertarelli received virtually no press coverage.
