Knoll will offer limited-edition versions of iconic designs by Florence Knoll and Harry Bertoia in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October 2018. Breast Cancer Awareness Month, sponsored by the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., is an annual campaign to increase awareness of this disease.
Knoll will support this cause doing what it does best: furniture, yet this time it's pink furniture. For the month of October, Knoll will offer both the 1952 side chair by Harry Bertoia and the 1947 Hairpin Stacking Table by Florence Knoll in a special, signature pink powder-coat finish. Sharing much in the way of materiality and craft, the two wire-form pieces strike a balance between their prominence and their ability to shine pink.
This year, Knoll will donate all net proceeds from the sale of limited-edition classics to benefit Susan G. Komen® LA County and Susan G. Komen Greater New York City. The Susan G. Komen organization is the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer. The local affiliates in New York City and LA work to develop programming to support local community health outreach, advocacy and other programs.
