Knoll has finally released the long awaited Newson Aluminum Chair by Marc Newson, embodying the company’s celebration of 80 years of innovative modern design.

Knoll once again called upon OMA ( the architecture studio co-founded by Rem Koolhaas ) to design the ” This is Knoll ” 2016 exhibition space

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.
