Architect and designer Florence Knoll is considered to be among the pantheon of modern design greats. She began her career under the tutelage of Eero Saarinen at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, before going on to study with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and to work for Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer. She would reconnect with Saarinen later, after founding her own company, Knoll, with her husband, Hans Knoll. There she worked with top designers to create or reissue such lasting icons as Saarinen’s “Tulip” chairs and tables, and the famous coffee table Isamu Noguchi created in 1944. An accomplished designer in her own right, Knoll was an early proponent of “total design,” the idea that all elements of a space, from its architecture down to its smallest details, should be connected.
