Florence Knoll for Knoll International Sideboard with Marble Top

About the Item

Florence Knoll for Knoll International, sideboard, lacquered oak, metal, Carrara marble, United States, 1960s. Credenza with chromed base designed by Florence Knoll for Knoll International. This exceptional and minimalistic designed credenza has elegant details, such as the chromed base and handles. The wood is lacquered into a deep black color, which nicely combines with the light white marble top with fine grey veins. The silver metal base and handles bring some freshness to the quite dark cabinet. Equipped with efficient storage possibilities. Florence Knoll (1917) was trained as an architect and had a sense of style from a very young age. During her school time at Cranbrook, Eliel Saarinen (then the headmaster) and his family included her in their family. In 1936 she met Alvar Aalto and was trained by Marcel Breuer, Walter Gropius and (as if the long list of eminent designers is not long enough) Mies van der Rohe. This meant that although she was barely out of her teens, she was educated by the best of the European modernists. When she arrived in New York she worked on interior projects (being the only female) which is how she came to know Hans Knoll. When Florence joined Knoll, the planning unit started. Florence also made sure that the designs where more 'American Modernist' instead of Scandinavian, When Hans Knoll died she took over and did it with the utmost skill and professionality. Her long list of architect friends designed many famous pieces yet her own imprint on the company including her designs in what can be called 'humanist modernism' is what truly had the greatest impact. Knoll International was founded in New York by the 26 year old German Hans Knoll (1914-1955) in 1938. Hans' father, Walter Knoll was a true modernist and furniture manufacturer who had a reputation for quality. When Hans Knoll died at a young age his wife Florence Knoll took over and under her influence the company flourished and created its best designs. She designed and led the company where she cooperated with talented designers such as Eero Saarinen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Richard Schultz and Harry Bertoia. Please note that this item is in good, used condition and shows signs of use and wear common for pieces this age. The marble contains two small chips.
