Founded in 1938, Knoll is a global manufacturer of furnishings dedicated to design excellence.
Knoll uses modern design to connect people to their work, their lives, their world. Since 1938, Knoll has been recognized internationally for creating workplace and residential furnishings that inspire, evolve, and endure. Today the Knoll commitment to modern design, understanding of the workplace, and dedication to sustainable design have yielded a unique portfolio of products that respond and adapt to changing needs.
For more than 80 years Knoll has remained true to the Bauhaus design philosophy that modern furniture should complement architectural space, not compete with it. At Knoll, modern design has been the guiding principle, and their passion has been shared by customers and design professionals worldwide.
Recognised worldwide as a design leader, Knoll is the recipient of hundreds of design awards, with products represented in major art museums around the world.
80 years of landmark collaborations, with pioneering modernists to bold contemporary designers, define not only the past but the future of Knoll through active, recent, and future partnerships with Antenna Design, Don Chadwick, Formway Design, Jehs & Laub, Joseph D’Urso, David Adjaye, and OMA.
In July 2021 Herman Miller announced that the acquisition of Knoll was completed, so creating the preeminent leader in modern design. Infact the combined company comprises 19 leading brands, a presence across over 100 countries worldwide, a global dealer network, 64 showrooms globally, more than 50 physical retail locations, and global multi-channel eCommerce capabilities.
