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.
“Dominant, important, determinant, no frills, no stains, no tyre kickers, a time of action, a time for realism, pragmatic stands, open markets, different languages, evolved styles, decisive lines, attentive brands, poetry here and there, history everywhere, attention to the customer, attention to detail, lots of people, important signal, classic, yet shimmering, shifting “. ………. Alpha Salone – by Paolo Bocchi
Knoll has once again collaborated with architect Rem Koolhaas and OMA, and “Inside Outside” founder Petra Blaisse, to design its showroom display at the Piazza Bertarelli.
This year in Milan. Knoll celebrates the centennial of the birth of Harry Bertoia ( 1915 – 1978 ) with a true in-depth exploration of this eclectic designer—through all his art forms, from sculptures to jewellery and from monoprints to the master’s celebrated Knoll Bertoia furniture collection
La Tenda Milano, at via Solferino 10, demonstrated its strong interest in the world of art and design, with a celebration of aesthetic and technique based on the chosen theme of Africa.
La Tenda Experience – Fashion and Art paid homage to a land that fascinates the design and fashion community with its culture and colours
An exhibition that tells the story of the Nakashima Straight Chair: first as a hand-made piece crafted exclusively at Nakashima’s workshop; next as part of the Knoll product line in the 1940s and 50s; and finally, as a modern production piece reintroduced to the Knoll catalogue in 2008.
If you are creating your own label then I think it’s quite good to have an identity.
I’m like Land Rover of the furniture world — a bit chunkier, not particularly stylish.
