Milan, 11 April 2019 - At the 59th Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Knoll presents new designs by Piero Lissoni and Barber & Osgerby alongside reimagined Modern classics. The installation, designed by OMA, mimics Marcel Breuer's original design of the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Beneath the signature ceiling, modularity, prefabrication and geometry give rise to a versatile, functional space. OMA chose different materials that reinforce the concept of variety and create perfect backdrops for the products of the Knoll collection: tactile and solid, organic and artificial. The path through the stand reveals nuanced updates to iconic Knoll designs, mixed with new work, harmoniously shifting from subtle details to elegant, unexpected ensembles.
